Toxic Behavior

Here are some questions to ask yourself about your parents’ behavior. If this conduct is chronic and persistent, it can be toxic to your self-esteem.

  1. Do they tend to overreact or create a scene?
  2. Do they use emotional blackmail?
  3. Do they make frequent or unreasonable demands?
  4. Do they try to control you? (“My way or the highway”?)
  5. Do they criticize or compare you?
  6. Do they listen to you with interest?
  7. Do they manipulate, use guilt, or play the victim?
  8. Do they blame or attack you?
  9. Do they take responsibility and apologize?
  10. Do they respect your physical and emotional boundaries?
  11. Do they disregard your feelings and needs?
  12. Do they envy or compete with you?
