Silently Seduced: When Parents Make Their Children Partners Kindle Edition
In this revised and updated 20th anniversary edition of his groundbreaking book Silently Seduced, Dr. Adams explains how 'feeling close,' especially with the opposite-sex parent, is not the source of comfort the image suggests, especially when that child is cheated out of a childhood by being a parent's surrogate partner. He offers a framework to understand this covert incest and its effect on sexuality, intimacy, and relationships, and how victims can begin the process of recovery.

I’ve suffered for many years with depression, poor relationships and a general lack of self care. This book helps explain that it’s not your fault, that you weren’t given the right tools when growing up and that being angry is ok.
However, at some point you need to find some peace with it all and make the best of things. Forgiveness is a personal choice and nowadays I keep an arms length relationship with both my parents and I stopped over sharing with them and learnt to keep my life private. That’s sad because you believe your parents will always have your best interests at heart. But if you’ve grown up in a toxic family dynamic you come to realise that’s not actually the case.
Anyone who’s been effected by this kind of upbringing would do well to also look up articles on Parentification and co-dependent and narcissistic relationships. It might well save your life and give you a shot at finding some happiness.
