13 Signs Of A Toxic Parent and How They Damage Their Children Without Realizing It!

Reader insightful post on parenting. Well-worth reading. Parenting is a tough gig. Most parents aren't educated on how to be good parents and they only do what was done to them or what they think is best, I know that's how I was. The world would be a better place if parenting skills were taught and required. There are no perfect parents, and everyone suffers at some point in their lives:

 There are all kinds of parents and parenting possibilities. Some are very strict and control every aspect of their child’s life, others are very chill and let the child make their own decisions and mistakes.


It is most certain that although there are many different approaches, all parents want to do the best for their kids.

Unfortunately, some parents fail to be the best supporters and examples. Of course, all parents make mistakes from time to time, and there is no right or wrong way to raise a kid, but some mistakes are bigger than others and can leave a permanent mark on the child.
Find out if your parents were making these errors when they raised you. And if you are a parent, try to avoid these 13 behaviors, because this hurts your child.


  1. Miss Ann,

    The "13 signs of a Toxic Parent" are suspect.

    Why not teach the parents truth? E.g.:

    To teach their children the precepts of God. "And ye shall teach... your children... when thou sittest in thine house, when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." (Deuteronomy 11:19).

    Discipline their children. "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." & "Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him." (Proverbs 22:6 & 15).

    Not to provoke their children to anger "...provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." & "...provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged." (Ephesians 6:4 & Colossians 3:21).

    A parent should strive to live an exemplary life to their children. They pick up on what we do and NOT what we say.

    1. PERFECT!

      Most parents do not adhere to these simple commands. They would rather listen to Oprah and Dr. Phil.
