Noted author and therapist, Dr. Lindsay Gibson, is back to talk with Amee about life as an adult who had emotionally-immature parents. When a child is in an environment that is leaving them starved of the emotional connections they need to develop properly, they find ways to survive. However, these survival mechanisms or adaptions to the environment become the norm and carry through into our adult life. Without developing self-awareness and understanding the types of parents we had and the environment we grew up in, we are apt to continue to relive or recreate our conditions over and over again. <p>
Listen as Amee and Lindsay talk about the types of coping styles children develop and how they influence us as adults in parenting, romantic relationships and life in general.
