Book Overview

If you grew up with an emotionally immature, unavailable, or selfish parent, you may have lingering feelings of anger, loneliness, betrayal, or abandonment. You may recall your childhood as a time when your emotional needs were not met, when your feelings were dismissed, or when you took on adult levels of responsibility in an effort to compensate for your parent's behavior. These wounds can be healed, and you can move forward in your life.

In this breakthrough book, clinical psychologist Lindsay Gibson exposes the destructive nature of parents who are emotionally immature or unavailable. You will see how these parents create a sense of neglect, and discover ways to heal from the pain and confusion caused by your childhood. By freeing yourself from your parents' emotional immaturity, you can recover your true nature, control how you react to them, and avoid disappointment. Finally, you'll learn how to create positive, new relationships so you can build a better life.

Discover the four types of difficult parents:

  • The emotional parent instills feelings of instability and anxiety
  • The driven parent stays busy trying to perfect everything and everyone
  • The passive parent avoids dealing with anything upsetting
  • The rejecting parent is withdrawn, dismissive, and derogatory

   Superb--Now Please Write The Same Book About The Workplace
Hope you will read ADULT CHILDREN OF EMOTIONALLY IMMATURE PARENTS. It has changed our lives in many ways. It was the best read of the decade. She should soon launch Alzheimer's workers of emotional intelligence. There is a crisis in the workplace. I plugged the lessons from this book into the workplace and was amazed by the clarity and hope it shares. Superb read. I'm reading it again and it's so good. It's!

   No depth, just filled with stories
This book isn't on the same level as brene brown and ksten neff. The book was easy to read filled with mostly stories of her clients, but it didn't grab my attention or help. Sorry.

   A must read

   Everyone should read this book!
I finished the book in two days. I took a lot of notes and pages to discuss with my therapist. If you were raised by a boomer or silent generation, you should read this. The parenting practices of those generations line up with emotional immaturity. It is easy to read and gives a lot of references to different studies, theories and books. It helped give me clarity into my loneliness, because I felt so seen and heard. Dr. Gibson gives a lot of examples of real life, including how to deal with emotionally immature parents and how to identify emotionally mature people. I have suggested this book to many of my friends.

   Well-written, insightful book
The chapter on Internalizers was recommended by my therapist. I've never read anything that described me so accurately. I bought the rest of the book. It's clear and not like anything I've read before. I highly recommend if you are struggling with anxiety or depression due to immature parents.

   Lifesaving!
I've only been reading this book for two hours, but I'm already seeing a change in my life. I've never seen a high product rating with a lot of reviews, and I was a bit skeptical. I have an elderly parent who is about to go into a massive crisis which is threatening to have a massive impact on me. This author and this book have been so helpful to me. I am already feeling the difference of observing and giving up my healing fantasies. Thank you very much.

   Unexpectedly learned a lot about myself
I was raised by immature people. I didn't expect to find that I'm also an emotionally immature one. It gave me a lot of insight to understand myself and how I think, but it also made me rationalize my behavior.

   Judgmental
I got this book for my brother and I was reading it so we could talk about it, but I am not going to give it to him because it is judgmental about the way he has coped with the way our father treated him. The author talks about people she thinks won't read her book. I took a look at it first so it wouldn't hurt him.

   Really Helpful (Not Psychobabble)
I wouldn't have given it a second look if I had seen it in a bookstore. I wasn't introduced to it that way. It was recommended to her friend by her counselor. As I listened, I thought, Oh my! That's my family. I have recommended it to many people. This book can help you identify abuse in your family if you struggle with being an emotional person. This isn't a read-and-toss book. I come back to it many times to get clarity. I can't think of a better place to begin to understand the journey of becoming an emotionally mature person.

   Life changing, for sure.
Books that change lives are what most of us find. This is the book. It sounds like immature parents are harmless. It is not like that. It is brutality and ugliness for those that have survived. After 60 years. I feel like I'm wearing comfortable jeans. I know, it sounds weird. Life does not hurt. Imagine that. Trust me, it's doable, Dr. Gibson talks about having a second life after healing. I wish I had found this book 30 years ago.
