Parent and child emotional blackmail

While much of the focus of this article is on couple relationships, emotional blackmail frequently happens between parents and children.

Many people grow up being so used to their parents emotionally blackmailing them that, as adults, they fail to see the signs in an abuser.

They are often key targets for emotional blackmailers who like having them as partners as they’re so deep in FOG, they are easy to blackmail.

If you grew up with an emotional blackmailer for a parent, it might be difficult to see their behavior for what it was.

It’s often very hard to detach as an adult, but doing so is the route to healing from an emotionally abusive childhood.
