The Connection Between Childhood Experiences And Adult ProblemsUploader: Aragore 5 month ago Subscribe 7
March is all about the problem with permissiveness and over-entitlement at home, school and work. It's become abundantly clear over the past plus years of doing psychotherapy that childhood experiences are at the root of adult problems. For example, parents may wonder if the children love them only for the benefits they dole out and the children live in fear that they will be cut off if they misstep or somehow offend their parents. Our personal and societal happiness relies on it. If part of the neglect includes a lack of protection from hurtful experiences, the child will grow up feeling helpless, worthless -- because they'll start to see themselves as not entitled to protection -- and perhaps even deserving of harm. These failures foster a kind of arrested development.
