Here’s what to do if your parents are manipulative and making you feel self-conscious, anxious

  • Parents can and do gaslight their children, or manipulate them to question their sanity and cause them to doubt their own judgment and memory.
  • Oftentimes, parents who engage in gaslighting have narcissistic personality traits and/or suffer with alcohol/drug abuse.
  • Parents may outright lie to their children, discredit their thoughts, cause them to feel self-conscious, anxious, weak, and confused.
  • If you suspect a parent is gaslighting you, you should bring these observations to a trusted individual’s attention, such as a counselor.
  • You should also explore the possibility of family therapy, to potentially fix this unhealthy family dynamic.
