Candid, sincere, and insightful…
Quinn debuts with this understanding guide for adult children seeking to understand and overcome the long-term impact of growing up with an emotionally abusive parent. Through her own story, Quinn reflects on the multiple ways an emotionally and physically abusive parent can impact the lives of their adult children. She delves into themes of guilt, rage, long-term trauma, feelings of inadequacy, disappointment, and emotional emptiness, forgiveness, and self-discovery while offering sage advice and simple practices to help the reader break free from old patterns and find peace and healing. Though the book doesn’t offer any successful coping strategies for those who find it impossible to bond with their emotionally insensitive parents, it provides helpful advice to create an individualized program for self-protection, resolution, and healing. Readers will find relief from recognizing that they are not alone. This excellent book is a must-read for any adult who has ever struggled with an abusive parental relationship and seeks to enjoy a more emotionally fulfilling life.
