Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents

“Emotionally immature parents fear genuine emotion and pull back from emotional closeness,” Lindsay Gibson writes. “They use coping mechanisms that resist reality rather than dealing with it. They don’t welcome self-reflection, so they rarely accept blame or apologize. Their immaturity makes them inconsistent and emotionally unreliable, and they’re blind to their children’s needs once their own agenda comes into play.”
