Reading this now. My therapist recommended it & it is a very helpful, quick read. It helps with those of us who have issues with parental guilt & manipulation. It’s purpose is to help you regain your self worth & develop new ways to interact.
One of the best books I’ve ever read. It literally changed my life.
Anyone who thinks they may have been abused in any way by a parent or caregiver should read this book.
I wish there were a way to download this book. I want it, but I don’t want my parents to find it. :/
Passing this along for people who need it!

talk to kids like they’re people and take full interest in what they’re saying because they’re forming their personalities and it’s really vital that they know that their opinions are important and what they have to say deserves validation and respect. so when your three year old niece tells you that dragons don’t like cupcakes because the color blue is a spoon you better nod your head and ask her to explain more about that.
So Franny had actually done fine alone for 7 years. The definition of fine being: 1) did not starve to death 2) was kind of beautiful if you could accommodate her being drug addicted street trash who had turned into a crazy cat lady except with black rocks instead of cats 3) played really hurt, sorrowful, wounded folk music at gatherings or on the streets in town 4) had a 4x4 truck with a big bed and a 400 cu engine that didn’t run.
