HURTING OURSELVES – Emotionally (cont.)
Lack of Self-Care
• ACoAs were originally subjected to many different kinds of PMES care – some parents were too rigid, some too lax.  In some families too much was expected of us – expected to fend for ourselves &/or take care of others – way too early. Some parents did way too little daily care & maintenance for us, so we had to figure everything out for ourselves, so we never learned how to do things easily, correctly, efficiently –  or at all.  In some cases a hero/martyr parent may have done too much, without teaching us how to do things for ourselves – making us naive, ignorant or stupid – & dependent on others.
