Children are like wet cement, whatever falls on them will make an impression. Stop Child abuse.
Stop trying to win the favor of abusive and uncaring family members or friends.
Anyone who engages in this inappropriate behavior has personality problems, especially a parent who did not love their child.
Children of toxic parents could have PhDs in justifying why their parents treated them so badly.
Adult children of toxic parents often don’t really acknowledge that their parents did anything wrong, until therapy.
When you can tell your story and it doesn’t make you cry. That’s when you know you’ve healed.
Put your own emotional needs last – grew up with a verbally, physically abusive parent, or a manipulative one, your own emotional life will always come last in the hierarchy of household.
You take rejection and failure very hard. Children of toxic parents often have a terrifying reaction to anything that isn’t stellar success.
Dysfunctional families have a number of pretty good actors.

According to my personal experience, this is true that everyone is acting a specific role to maintain the so-called harmony of family system.
The scapegoat – typically the child often described as imitating, deceitful, hostile and disobedient.
There are families that always focus on a specific child, claiming that he / she is the root of all problems in family.
Do you recognize one in your circle of friends? Or sadly you actually one of these scapegoat? What’s your opinion?
