    Emotional Incest is something not many people have heard of. It’s when a parent/guardian uses a child to fulfill their emotional needs. Something they should be seeking other adults for. Example: the parent that tells their child every aspect of their day in detail. Or the parent that complains about their problems to their kid. Even the parent that bad mouths their spouse to their kid. The parent in turn is not likely to give the same attention back to the child. It’s all about them. Someti [...]

    I've learned that being my mother's best friend and confidante did a lot of damage to me that I didn't understand until now. Things I do and ways I react can be traced back to "Emotional Incest" between her and myself.

    I started reading this book to help me get advice on how to to care for my eighty-two year old mother in a way that was compassionate and would give me a better perspective what a normal parent and child relationship should look like. When my father died four years ago and during three years preceding that, Mom began to rely on me more for doing chores and keeping her company which my father used to do. I was feeling a lot of strain about this not only because I work full time and was not gettin [...]

    A book with many helpful tips on how to bring a person back to center after being enmeshed (had an emotionally attached adult that dumped their needs and wants onto a child instead of another adult) with a parent. Helpful exercises on how to accept your parents, work things out with siblings and spouses, and come to terms with what happened then and now. Will definitely need to read again.

    So far, amazing. It covers healthy relationships, family dynamics, different types of issues and so far is not only informative but corrective. I highly recommend to anyone who was raised with alcoholics, addictions of any kind, divorce, or a single parent.

    GREAT for anyone who needs to discover their family's dysfunction! If you feel like your parent's love, or their life, runs yoursis book is for you. However, the first half is better than the second half.

    Boy, this book brought a new level to my understanding, healing, and growth. Although the syndrome has a hard-to-swallow name--one that makes you go, EW!--, what is happening is definitely emotional incest: a parent has become WAY too emotionally involved with you, FAR surpassing normal parent/child bonds, and has no right to be doing that. I now have one more piece to my puzzle (and, as it turns out, my mom's).Unlike other reviewers, I found the second half of the book to be as eye-opening as t [...]

    This book made me cry several times over and often at unexpected sections in the book. I have no words to describe how this book opened my mind & helped me find answers to questions Id been asking almost all my life and also helping me to love & forgive my family.

    I find this book very insightful. It gave me a more clear picture of several of the dysfunctions in my family and childhood. It made me realize that the concept of family in the society I grew up, leads to paralyzed and insecure adults. And it gave me food for thought and some guidance for when I decide to make a family.

    I read this book for a specific client I was working with. I found this book to be easily accesible; welll written and filled with examples. For the healthiest families to the most toxic, you will resonate with her stories.
