I must have done something really really right last year, because this year a Monarch butterfly visited my garden on Saturday, and left me quite a few little treasures. Last year I had bought a few milkweed plants from the nursery that had monarch eggs on them. A new obsession was born! I put them in a butterfly habitat and cared for them until they became butterflies. I then released them in the garden with plenty of milkweed to keep the cycle going. My goal was for them to return next year and do it all again… AND THEY DID! SUCCESS! I have only seen one Monarch, but she left plenty of eggs to start the season off strongly. I will certainly keep you up to date.

It’s time to put an end to the cycle of emotional abuse and manipulation you endured as a child.
Did you have a dysfunctional family when you were growing up?

Do you feel that your parents’ immature behavior has emotionally traumatized you?

Are you determined to break this cycle of emotional abuse so that you don’t repeat it with your own kids?

A child’s brain is like a sponge: highly absorbent and impressionable. Any experience, good or bad, will have a lasting effect on a child’s development, and this continues well into adulthood.

Sadly, this also stands true for children living with emotionally unavailable or neglectful parents.

Take a moment and think about your childhood. Can you identify the signs of emotional abuse you endured from your parents?

• Being insulted for your actions

• Being fearful of a parent

• Doubting your own choices and opinions

• Feeling neglected or unloved

• Being manipulated or controlled on an emotional level

These are all signs of emotional abuse.

You might find that most of your childhood revolved around your parents and their needs, instead of the other way around.

These traumatic experiences left a scar in your development, and now, as a parent, you want to end this cycle, making sure that you don’t treat your children in the same way.

You need to break this toxic cycle so that you can develop a nurturing, happy relationship with your kids.

And it all begins with rising from the ashes of your own childhood trauma…

In Life After Emotionally Immature Parents, you will discover:

• The 5 types of emotionally immature parents (and how their behavior affects children)

• How trauma is used to emotionally bond as well as isolate a child for manipulation (think Stockholm syndrome)

• 7 unrealistic expectations of emotionally immature parents (perhaps you’ll recognize one or two from your own experience… )

• A clear understanding of the abuse cycle – discover the signs of emotional abuse and its cyclic pattern, along with 3 psychological manipulation tactics

• Parenthood done right – explore the 5 parenting styles, and discover what it really means to be a great and responsible parent

• The 4 patterns of attachment styles (and why, as a parent, you should aim for ‘secure attachment’)

• The 10 most common toxic parenting patterns that you need to unlearn using positive messages

• How to navigate the road to recovery – acknowledge your inner child as you apply these 8 practical tips to heal from your abusive childhood

And much more.

Detaching yourself from the emotional trauma of your childhood will give you a positive outlook towards building a healthy relationship with your kids as you rediscover a better you.

A new life awaits… without the emotional trauma.
