Believe it or not, there are 'toxic' parents with their children. The word 'toxic' perfectly defines what may be the inappropriate behavior of one person towards another. In this case we are talking about a toxic behavior on the part of parents towards their children, something that really becomes dangerous in the emotional development of the little ones, since they need their parents and a very important emotional stability.
The construction of the personality of children has a lot to do with the behavior of parents towards them, so it becomes paramount that parents are aware that there are behaviors that children can seriously harm in the long run.
Being a parent does not only mean fathering a child
Being a father and mother is not only a father of a child, it is much more than that. It is unconditional love, it is affection, it is affection, it is forgiveness, it is freedom, it is values, it is education, it is knowledge ... But it is never shouting, manipulation, aggressiveness, blackmail or any other word that can denote a toxic behavior that can affect the emotional health of children.
Being a father also means something fundamental for anyone: giving the necessary tools so that a child when he grows can face the world. If a parent is not clear about this or his behavior is not directed towards that path, then, it is dangerous that the behavior becomes toxic.
Unfortunately, there are cases in which the relationship with parents becomes complicated, at home there is no harmony due to the tension caused by the negative attitude of parents, who may usually have inappropriate reactions where criticism destructive, victimization and even competition with their own children becomes a dangerous way for the child to grow up happy or accompanied by their parents.
Consequences in children of negative behavior of parents
This is very sad, because children who suffer this type of behavior, grow up thinking that it is normal, and that suffering is common. But when, already severely emotionally hurt, they have grown enough to realize what is really normal or not, they will be greatly disappointed, creating a difficult (but not impossible) spot to heal. Because of toxic parents,children will reach adulthood being:
- Insecure. - With low self-esteem.
- With great emotional instability.
Children deserve to grow up in a happy environment and not in one filled with tension because of the emotional problems of their parents.
