But every now and then, something happens in a child’s mind, that tells him/her irrefutably, that what their parent is doing to them is just plain WRONG. These are the people who are the cycle breakers. They will live the rest of their lives on high alert, to any behaviors that are even remotely similar to the dysfunctioning parent.
These children will grow up to be parents who are conscientious of how they are raising their children. Being fully aware that they did not experience good parenting, they will ask questions, talk to professionals, read books, and truly educate themselves, in hopes of being a better parent to their children. They will be their children’s role model. They will be the absolute opposite of the disordered parent who raised them.
