• There was no bonding with Mike Rinder, a very cold man

    Taryn Rinder as a child

    When I did see Mike Rinder, my father, he treated me like he did everyone else, with disdain. I felt inferior, and it felt like he saw me because he thought he had to do it, not because he wanted to talk to me. Our conversations were really awkward and had no warmth. But that is Mike Rinder. Mike is a cold man. There was no bonding with him, and Mike did what he could to make me feel inferior.
