Parental abuse damages countless lives, and evidence shows that parents who were abused as children often go on to abuse their own children. Difficulties can also arise with other relationships and with careers, and those who have been victims can suffer from depression. But the problem is not confined to incest and violence - "toxic" parents can be alcoholics or drug addicts, or those who ignore the needs of their children or overburden them with guilt; and there are those who are simply indifferent or inadequate. Dr Forward confronts the painful legacy left by such people and suggests self-help techniques for abused children who wish to leave the past behind. She is the founder a private sexual abuse clinic in California and the author of "Men Who Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them".

Review:

All parents fall short from time to time. But Susan Forward pulls no punches when it comes to those whose deficiencies cripple their children emotionally. Her brisk, unreserved guide to overcoming the stultifying agony of parental manipulation--from power trips to guilt trips and all other killers of self worth--will help deal with the pain of childhood and move beyond the frustrating relationship patterns learned at home.

From the Publisher:

When you were a child...

Did your parents tell you were bad or worthless?

Did your parents use physical pain to discipline you?

Did you have to take care of your parents because of their problems?

Were you frightened of your parents?

Did your parents do anything to you that had to be kept secret?

Now that you are an adult...

Do your parents still treat you as if you were a child?

Do you have intense emotional or physical reactions after spending time with your parents?

Do your parents control you with threats or guilt?

Do they manipulate you with money?

Do you feel that no matter what you do, it's never good enough for your parents?

In this remarkable self-help guide, Dr. Susan Forward drawn on case histories and the real-life voices of adult children of toxic parents to help you free yourself from the frustrating patterns of your relationship with your parents -- and discover an exciting new world of self-confidence, inner strength, and emotional independence.
