Children growing up in dysfunctional homes sometimes accept responsibility for the hurtful actions of parents and other adults. They place themselves at fault for being victimized.
They misread what happens to them as an indication of something wrong with them.
A woman in her early forties acknowledged that she finally began to overcome the effects of growing up in a violent home when she realized that what happened to her as a child was not her fault.
It’s essential to help these children (or the adults who had this experience) distinguish between being a victim and accepting a victim’s mentality. I outline the difference carefully in my book.
Whether this has been your experience, or you know someone affected by it, my book will provide helpful guidance and conversational points. I’ve written the 18_Year Factor partly for equipping people to be discerning helpers of those who struggle.
