  1. Any type of emotional invalidation in a child’s 18+ years with us as parents can cause personality disorders such as Schizoid, OCPD, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Narcissism, Anti-Social Personality Disorder and others. I have learned this from all of my research on the abuse I suffered as a child – emotionally, physically and mentally. Thanks for sharing! Author J.B. Snow

  2. I remember my mom getting on me with my first cause I held her a lot and didn’t do the CIO method. She kept saying the baby is just trying to manipulate you. I ignored her and picked up my child. Now I see new parents talking about letting their babies cry it out and how wonderful it is and you can’t let the baby manipulate you. I just cringe!
