Summary:

If you grew up with an emotionally immature, unavailable, or selfish parent, you probably still struggle with anger, sadness, resentment, or shame. As a child, your emotional needs were not met, your feelings were dismissed, and you likely took on adult levels of responsibility in an effort to compensate for your parent's behavior. Somewhere along the way, you lost your sense of self. And without this strong sense of self, you may feel like your own well-being isn't valuable.

In this compassionate guide you'll find tips and tools to help you set boundaries with others, honor and validate your emotions, and thrive in the face of life's challenges. You'll discover how to protect yourself from hurtful behavior, stop making excuses for others' limitations, forge healthier relationships, and feel more confident in your life. Most importantly, you'll learn how to stop putting others' needs before your own, and manage daily stressors.

Self-care means honoring and respecting the self. But when you grow up with emotionally immature parents, you are taught that setting limits is selfish and uncaring. You are taught to seek approval instead of authenticity in relationships. But there's another way to go through life-one in which you can take care of yourself, first and foremost. Let this book guide you toward a new way of being.

    This book is awful, and it’s really disappointing. I listened to this book after listening to Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents and Recovering from Emotionally Immature Parents. This book does not offer any ideas of self care. The author goes on a lot of strange tangents. The author makes a really damaging argument that children that have been traumatized by society or emotionally immature parents would not choose to be raised in a healthy environment because of who they ended up growing up to be. Adult children of emotionally immature parents deserve to be raised in a loving and safe home. Moreover, the author makes assumptions about the Zoomer generation, and the assumptions just date the author. This book has highly disappointed me, I do not recommend it.

    This book is a MUST. It's almost equal parts scientific facts and real stories that you will absolutely relate to at some point I this book I'm quite positive. regardless of who you or your parents are. Mind opening. Life changing. I don't think her prior titles are necessary at all but I do highly reccomend all 3 "Adult Children of EIP" books. After this one I recommend 'How To Do The Work" -Dr Nicole LePera
