What a WASTE of Time!

My heavens, where do I begin??? I should've known after the first 5 mins that a book where the author writes "immatureness" instead of "immaturity" would be an epic FAIL. Another example was "I'll soap myself" instead of "I'll wash my hands"...... Narrator's voice over time is irksome. Learned NOTHING.

This book does not reveal or inform the reader about anything past a high schooler's knowledge. Very basic and obvious info. It does NOT provide ANY information for who the book title implies it's for: the child of the abused. The first 75% of the book is background info and the last chapters with supposed "solutions" are written for TEACHERS who notice abused children and from a textbook perspective, like how to train pp entering the field of social services. TOTALLY DECEIVING DESCRIPTION.

AGAIN, IF YOU ARE A TEEN OR ADULT WHO GREW UP WITH EMOTIONALLY NEGLECTFUL PARENTS, this book is NOT for you.

Incredible knowledge for ALL connections not simpl

We as a whole originate from some brokenness of youth elements in whatever characterized your group of cause. I am so happy to have more consciousness of things I do and the manner in which I was/am treated previously and right up 'til the present time by loved ones. Additionally supportive as a parent to stop negative behavior patterns and increasing some new great character qualities! Anybody perusing this will profit!

Realistically Relevant

Her portrayals are right on target and equal my clinical encounters. She gives not just a plainly enunciated comprehension of the effect disregarded parental examples can have on grown-up kids yet a confident and feasible message established in neuroscience that change is conceivable

Life-changing

"What made the experience of tuning in to Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents the most pleasant?
This book totally upset my life. These ideas of sincerely juvenile individuals versus sincerely develop individuals, and internalizers versus externalizers, and so forth., clarify so particularly about my reality and the relational peculiarity I've encountered. It assisted with clearing up the vast majority of the disarray I had in regards to my determined guardians, and responded to questions I didn't have the foggiest idea how to explain."

Clarification on why and commonsense exhortation o

This book was genuinely groundbreaking in finding why as well as how and what to do in regards to growing up with sincerely juvenile guardians. I plan to re-read it again to completely assimilate everything. I particularly preferred the models gave as most all were relatable.

Recommended.

I will reference this book while dealing with the issues it talks about I discovered it very sagacious, itemized, and simple to follow. I truly loathed the storyteller's style of talking, yet found the book so supportive I had the option to disregard that without any problem. It is well worth tuning in to.

Excellent

Brief, noteworthy, nonjudgmental introduction of enthusiastic adolescence. Simple to relate to portrayals of how that impacts connections. Sound guidance and support on acting all the more sincerely develop.
