Powerful book Apr 22, 2008
This book addresses a common family dynamic that happens when parents try to rely on their children for emotional support. Gives a good description of the problem along with strategies to work past it.
Life changing book Jan 7, 2008
It was a hard read because of how much this book made sense to my H and I. It's well written and easy to understand. This was most definitely life changing for us and set us on a much better road. I recommend this book all the way. (And have!)
Very Insightful Reading Jun 12, 2007
I purchased this book because of another family member (not immediate) experiencing serious issues with her parents, as well as a close friend of mine trying to break free from a very emotionally dependent parent. The book clearly spells out the kinds of problems children endure because of emotionally dependent parents and gives great advice on how to break and stay free. It is very insighful reading because it is written by someone who has been there and lived that. I highly reccomend it.
Invaluable Aug 29, 2006
Everyone should read this book. There is so much information in it about how healthy families behave that it would be useful even for those who have not been subject to an extremely close relationship with a parent.
Don't be put off by the title. "Emotional Incest" sounds strong and you might be tempted to believe that it doesn't apply to you. Read the back cover and decide for yourself.
Good Insights - Not enopugh practical advice Aug 20, 2005
Good insights into the nature of emotional incest. Well written. Definitely worth a read, but falls short on advice as to WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT.
