Surviving a Borderline Parent: How to Heal Your Childhood Wounds and Build Trust, Boundaries and Self-Esteem


Product Description

Published USA, 2003
Adult children of borderline parents may need to do years of work to recover from the narcissism of their caregivers. This book pinpoints why the adult child does not feel `normal`. The parental love was, perhaps, inconsistent and conditional leading to feelings of worthlessness, shame and self-doubt. This book suggests that it is never too late to get off `the emotional rolercoaster`. Adult children can finally accept that they can`t get much of what they need from their parents but they can learn to give it to themselves and to get it from others.
