You are not to blame for what happened in your life as a child. But you can do something about it.

The hurtful legacy of toxic parents manifests itself in adulthood as difficulties with relationships , decision making, and depression. Whatever the burden you carry- from the shame of alcoholism or abandonment to the scars of verbal or physical abuse to the ultimate betrayal of incest, Dr Forward can help release you from the demons of self blame once and for all.

This book has two parts. The first part has chapters about the different kinds of abuse we all can suffer in childhood. When I read this book I realized I grew up in a verbally abusive home, and I have been abusive to my children in a number of ways. The second part of the book is about reclaiming your life. Dr. Forward gives you tools to reclaim your life and she teaches you how to use them. I was frustrated in my life about how to change my own abusive behaviors and why I had them in the first place until I read this book. Knowing and having the tools has really helped me to change my life. I found a lot of peace when I read this book. Sometimes we can’t admit to ourselves we have been abused. The first step to healing is to recognize that it happened to us

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 an exciting new world of self-confidence, inner strength, and emotional independence.

I would recommend this book to all adults that want positive changes in their lives.
