Surviving Improper Parenting

Eleven seminarsBecause parents are usually the first influence in our lives, what we learn or do not learn from them when we're young can have lasting repercussions. Unfortunately, this can translate into many people suffering from the effects of improper parenting.

If not addressed, those effects can be felt for a lifetime, and they include low self-esteem, being drawn into abusive relationships, unhealthy habits or inhibitions and feelings of worthlessness.

Improper parenting can include physical, sexual and verbal abuse, physical and emotional neglect, rejection, favoritism of one sibling over another, lack of discipline, forcing choices on children and being overly protective or indulgent.

Because we often parent as we were parented, it's important to heal our own wounds and learn proper parenting techniques so that we don't perpetuate the cycle. As P.D. James wrote in Time to Be in Earnest, "What a child doesn't receive, he can seldom later give."

The Impact of Unresolved Trauma on Relationships

Physicians use the word "trauma" to describe an injury that results from a sudden impact. But we can suffer short- or long-term emotional traumas as well. When we lose a key relationship or something that means a lot to us, or when we experience betrayal, abuse or neglect, it injures our hearts. And like a wound to our physical bodies, emotional injuries also require care and attention so that we may heal.

Origins of Emotional Trauma

Our emotional injuries can occur in the present or in the past. In the present, we may face the end of a significant relationship, the death or departure of a loved one, the end of a certain stage in life, such as sending your kids to college, or some kind of abuse or attack.

In childhood we may have experienced an absent or distant parent, a teacher who insulted our intelligence, appearance or athleticism, or we may have experienced neglect or physical, sexual or emotional abuse.

After emotional traumas, we need time to process, grieve and heal. This takes time, and isn't easy. It can be tempting to try and avoid the grief and other hard or uncomfortable feelings. We may even try to gloss over the fact that there's been a trauma at all.
