Toxic Parents: Overcoming Their Hurtful Legacy and Reclaiming Your Life


Parents who discern the behavior which would make them act as toxic parents and who wish to change can take steps to modify their behavior and cultivate behavior that is more in line with the parent they want to be. This is easier said than done and will likely require professional assistance to change the behavior effectively for the long term.

One of the hardest parts of dealing with a toxic parent situation is releasing the belief that there may be a magical permanent fix just around the next corner or after the next holiday or following the next big holiday present—in other words, that an event or new person or new dress or new jewel or bike just might turn the tide for the family and make everything O.K. again. That sort of magical thinking only leads to heartache and sadness. The best way that kids can cope is to refrain from any magical thinking or deceptive dreaming. Kids need to remain grounded in reality, no matter how difficult that may be.
