The quiz examines the relationship between you and your parents when you were a child. Was it a healthy or toxic relationship?
“Children who are not encouraged to do, to try, to explore, to master, and to risk failure, often feel helpless and inadequate. Over-controlled by anxious, fearful parents, these children often become anxious and fearful themselves. This makes it difficult for them to mature. Many never outgrow the need for ongoing parental guidance and control. As a result, their parents continue to invade, manipulate, and frequently dominate their lives.”
For the sake of simplicity, the following questions refer to parents in the plural, even though your answer may apply to only one parent.
