EMOTIONAL ABUSE Q & A with #LindaCJTurner

Q & A – What is inappropriate parental behaviour

Inappropriate parental behavior refers to actions or behaviors exhibited by a parent that are harmful, abusive, or neglectful towards their child. Here are some examples of inappropriate parental behavior:

  1. Physical abuse: This can include hitting, slapping, punching, kicking, or any other form of physical violence towards the child.
  2. Emotional abuse: This can include belittling, shaming, criticizing, or insulting the child. It can also include withholding love and affection or manipulating the child’s emotions.
  3. Neglect: This can include failing to provide the child with basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, or medical care. It can also include emotional neglect, such as failing to provide emotional support or attention.
  4. Sexual abuse: This can include any sexual activity between a parent and child, including inappropriate touching, sexual contact, or exposure to pornography.
  5. Substance abuse: If a parent is using drugs or alcohol to the extent that it affects their ability to care for their child, it can be considered inappropriate parental behavior.
  6. Enmeshment or emotional incest: This occurs when a parent relies on their child for emotional support and intimacy that should be reserved for adult relationships, as discussed in my previous response.

It’s important to note that any behavior that puts a child at risk of harm or interferes with their healthy development can be considered inappropriate parental behavior. If you suspect a child is experiencing inappropriate parental behavior, it’s important to report it to the appropriate authorities or seek help from a trusted professional.
