Publisher's Summary

Do you think your parent might be toxic?

Do you feel like you are living with the consequences of bad parenting?

Does your parent still treat you badly even though you are an adult?

Maybe your parent has passed away, but you still seem to be affected by them and cant stop thinking about the way they treated you.

This audiobook is for anyone that has been in a toxic relationship with their parent and would like to learn more about it and learn how to recover from the long lasting traumatic effects that the relationship has left you with.

This audiobook is for you if you have been in a toxic relationship with your parent and you just want to make sense of it and make some changes.

Maybe you have tried to talk to your partner or friends about your relationship, but they don’t understand either and they may even tell you that it couldn’t have been that bad.

Maybe you know that your parent treated you badly and unfairly growing up, and you know its affecting you now but you don’t know what to do about it.

Sometimes a parent can have a mental health illness like depression, borderline personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, or addictions, which unfortunately would have created a toxic environment for you to grow up in.

If so, then you might be feeling really alone and confused, frustrated and unable to see a way out or how things can change.

I can’t promise you that listening to this audiobook is going to be a “total cure”, but I can promise that if you apply yourself diligently, take notes, listen and re-listen the sections, follow all instructions to the letter, with a tenacious resolve to get better you will feel an instant decrease in anxiety within the first 24 hours and should see huge improvements within the first three days.

This is not hype, this is what my audience commonly report.

This audio book gives a clear understanding

Great book, My dad is trying to hold control over me. It took me 19 years to figure out that my dad was narcissistic. I'm no longer holding back on my independent personality and I'm learning to accept my true self. He does not see me as often, but still tries to hold power over my personality and relationships.

Good Introduction Book.

I love this audiobook, Having a narcissistic father , is similar to live in hell , you are involved in a toxicity that you can’t get rid of , my father is like that , I was putting him on pedestal when I was child , he likes so much to put his picture is good to people and inside he is a ball of shit , faking his behaviors, good with people and his family and to us like we are enemies specially to me and my mother , he abusive me physically for nothing all the time and when I start protect my self , he blame me that I can’t punish him because he is the father FUCK HIM , he blocked my success all the time because I am a successful student , his face is so terrible when he knew that I have a good grades , but I stopped telling him anything when I came out and start speak out to my rights , and I didn’t trust him in anything right now , I am really glad that I have only one year and I will be fucking always from him and start achieving my goals , and I will never quiet till I see the look of humiliation in his eyes , he is dead for me , AND I DONT FUCKING CARE THAT HE IS MY FATHER , I WILL NEVER ALLOWED HIM TO DRAG ME DOWN NEVER

Been the most helpful audiobook.

My dad didn't smoke or drink, he would look at other women but he was usually affectionate with my mom until he wasn't.I've been trying to move on but he makes things very difficult when he poses with his other kids and pretends like we were in the wrong, he needed help and never got it

Very easy to follow

Great book It sounds like you’re describing the relationship with the golden child. If you’re the scapegoat child, you cant do anything right in his eyes and they don’t take pride in anything you do. They’re very angry and rage-filled. Physically and emotionally abusive

Well informative and great content.

Surprisingly, this describes my mother, not my father. I always thought my father was the narc. And he was, to my mother.

Perfect book for learning Analyze People.

One of the strange things about living with a narcissist is that you begin to ask yourself whether you are a narcissist. I feel both relieved and crushed to realize my daughter probably has it after listening to this audiobook

It's awesome guide book.

What you describe is exactly my relationship with my narcissistic mother, although my father was also a narcissist. It was my mother's appendage.

Book which made me feel sure in my thoughts

I am 30 now and went out of my highly abusive father when I was 22. however I went back many times and each time I was receiving only critics, from a never worked, highly abusive father with grandiose ego. I never received any care but just harm from the flying monkey, the golden child and the narcisist father. However I received care and love from my grandparents. The brainwash of my brother continues by today and is still ongoing. I am happy to escape, but will try to make this book a gift to my brother who will not want to read it. Thank you for the story, now I don't feel alone! and I am sure in my actions of separation.

A Great Book!

My father was very verbally abusive in private. And the ideal father when others were around. People thought I was lying. Unfortunately, this created an opening for a family friend to molest me when I was a child. I am now in my 50's and able to deal with these emotions. And see my father for the flawed man that he was.

good book for beginners

I was subjected to a neglectful narc father. Reappear, disappear, etc. I was more like his cousin. Except for when I passed my bar exam. Then I was the daughter. Threw me an expensive party, then disappeared.

it was an awesome book

This book explains so much about my childhood, especially the idea of the narcissistic father pitting his daughter against the mother. I've only begun to properly rebuild my relationship with my mother since moving out. Since they've got divorced, I and my mum found out about narcissism and we're both helping each other heal from over 20 years of this bullshit. I idolized my dad as a kid and when he and my mum split for the first time I was about 10. He manipulated me, made out like the split was my mum's fault, and literally said things like "she doesn't want us to be a family anymore" when he left her. (I didn't know this until years later) I'm now having to deal with a lot of guilt and self resentment that it was my fault my mum took him back when she could have been free of him years ago. She said it wasn't, that she was the adult and chose it, but I can't help feeling that if I wasn't around, she wouldn't have suffered as much for so long. In the end, he became violent. He doesn't speak to me much now, because I've refused to feed his ego. I've refused to be the person that deals with his emotional baggage. I'm no longer of value. jeez.

Interesting information audio-book.

I so agree! Kids (even as adults) over glorifying their father, even if it means twisting facts to make him look better.

Informative Audio-Book.

interesting book, but I believe in many cases the border is fluent. what if the mother is a bitch that actually drives her husband down? it doesn't make the father narcissistic, it just means she is a psycho 🙂
