Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents: Rehabilitation from Self-Involved Parents, Distant Relationships, and Rejection (Paperback)
Feelings of anger, loneliness, betrayal, or abandonment may linger if you were raised by a parent who was emotionally immature, unavailable, or selfish. You may look back on your childhood with regret because your emotional needs were not met, your feelings were ignored, or you assumed adult responsibilities to make up for your parent's actions. You can get past these hurts and move on with your life.
Clinical psychologist Lindsay writes a groundbreaking book about the harmful effects of having emotionally immature or unavailable parents. You'll learn how these parents foster feelings of abandonment and isolation, and you'll find support as you work through the trauma of your formative years. You can recover your true nature, exercise control over your reactions to your parents, and safeguard yourself against disappointment if you can break free of their emotional immaturity. At last, you'll find out what it takes to meet new people and form strong bonds, paving the way to a more fulfilling existence.
