Publisher's Summary

Did you grow up in a family with parents who were abusive?

Do you still carry the mental or even physical scars?

Are you looking for a way to overcome the rejection, abuse, or other trauma you suffered?

Most of us are fortunate enough to be born to loving, caring and nurturing parents. We are encouraged and looked after, treated well and inspired. But what if that wasn’t you? What if your parents didn’t care for you in the way they were supposed to, and you are still suffering from that?

In this book, Dealing with Immature Parents: How to Recover From Narcissistic, Rejecting or Abusive Parenting, you can learn some of the lessons of how to deal with the lasting effects, through chapters on:

  • Parenthood and parenting styles
  • Mature and immature parenting
  • Where the roots lie
  • What immature parenting does to a child
  • Healing the wounds
  • Making sure you don’t do the same as your parents
  • And much more

Being a parent means taking responsibility. But if your parents never did that and you have been left with feelings of rejection or frustration, then you have to find your own way to recover.

Dealing with Immature Parents is the first step on that path. So buy this audiobook now and start healing today!

Something to meditate on.

I don’t want to make it sound as if my parents are very bad, but they can be very selfish and controlling at times. Glad I was able to internalize these insights from the brilliant author. I was almost teary-eyed by the time I finish the book. I was able to connect with this book that no other book has done.

Relieving!

I don’t have any doubts this will work for me because it’s clear and accessible. It’s like the author knows what’s exactly going through my mind and my heart. It’s helping me untangle my thoughts and feelings and it’s relieving! While some of the recommendations are perfect, some are not. But this is okay for me.

Pretty good.

I’m not certain when I might have to consult a guide like this, but I’m just glad I discovered this extensive book. It’s suitable for anyone who feels they’re isolated from family members, who have emotionally unavailable parents and parents who want to be the best for their child no matter what.

well done

So it's a little hard to follow at these points. But the wolf descriptions sure made me see what I had been through and why it is so hard to recover after over 20 years with the beast.

The recovery!

Many people are on abusive households and most of the abused are children. The physical aspect can heal but emotional and psychology that can take time to heal. I am sharing this audio book. Good to have it!

To deal!

This can be very helpful not just to learn how to deal immature parents but to understand everything. To cope up and move on and think what will be the best interaction when you are in the situation.

Gotta grab the Kindle version, too.

Other self-help books sound awful and just copied in the internet, so I got the audiobook version to make sure the ebook’s appropriate enough. It sure is and I was very much enlightened. I now know what mature parenting is and I’ve been doing it wrong all this time. Thankful we have books like this.

This book can change lives

It talks about things that we don't dare mention, and it validates our emotions. A definite must book for all adults as it helps us to know how to interact with emotionally immature people in general.

Eye opening

I highly recommend it. In fact, after a bit of time passes to allow what I am processing from it to fully absorb, I will re-listen to it in order to absorb more of the caring and loving support and information it provides that I was not able to absorb it and process all at one time.
