My report is on the book Toxic Parents by Dr Susan Forward I found this book very intrusting and scary in the same breath I could not understand some of the hurt and pain parents inflict on their children I do come from a home that was destroyed by divorce alcohol and drug use I can relate to some of the stories and it brought up my own struggles and made me question my own parents I dont know what normal parents are but this book made it clear what is not healthy for children and even adults to deal with from there parents I dont know where to go with this but I guess I will start off my opinions with the content of the book I was really shocked by reading other peoples struggles with there familys and was not fully aware of how much toxic censored fills our lives The one that I found bizarre but true is the direct control thing through guilt The story I am speaking about was the grown man from California who was going to go to Boston to be with his folks for their wedding anniversary His wife got sick and he tried to cancel his mother said she would die He compromised and showed up for one day His mother was devastated when he left early she carried on like it was the end of the world Its like the parents would let this man Mike live his own life and felt threatened by his happiness This I see through out my circle of friends and it is an almost accepted form of abuse People including myself had or have no idea until I read this case that that was a problem From this I will go in the false beliefs that we all live with in some sense or another I was aware of the term behavior and what kinds of processes go
