Adultifcation – Role Reversal of parent/ child

Adultification (or parentification) happens as a result of a parent expecting or needing a child to become a ‘grown up’, exposing them to an adult world prematurely. This robs that child of an innocent, carefree childhood. The child feels pressured to take on responsibilities or worries that the parent has burdened them with by their selfish oversharing and they’re denied the space to develop a separate and autonomous life. There’s instrumental parentification when a child takes on physical tasks like caring for an unwell family member or working to provide more money, things that would usually be done by the parent. Emotional parentification is especially common in parental alienation. The parent’s negative projection (onto the target parent) is enforced and indoctrinated on the child. Even though it’s good for a child to learn responsibilities, care for others, and altruism – the child may end up working in mental health – but in the extreme, adultification involves maladaptive narcissistic parenting.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
