Are you the child of toxic parents?

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.
