When you were a child...

  • Did your parents tell you 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 often frightened of your parents?
  • Did your parents do anything to you that had to be kept secret?

Now that you're 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 draws 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 a new world of self-confidence, inner strength, and emotional independence.

    " I really liked the way this author approached the topic -there are a lot of examples and no type of abuse is given a trump card over another. Also the different types of abuse (physical, sexual, verbal, etc.) are broken up by sections, so you can easily skip something if it's not relevant. If you've recently begun to realize that the negative voice in your head is an adaptation of one or both of your parents' voices, then this is a great book to get started freeing yourself from the cycle of guilt and shame you put yourself through. "

    " Too much to absorb at one reading. I'll go back and read this again. However, I found comfort in knowing that I was on the right track to freedom and liberation long before I read this. The thing I learned I need to do is to grieve for the child I never was; it's not self pity it's true grief. When I can do that, I think the true me will be revealed. "

    " I purchased this book after my mother died. I read this book in 3 days while cleaning out her apartment. I absolutely recommend to anyone who has or had difficult parents growing up. "
