Forget about isolating these descriptions for parents, people with these issues are going to have a rough road.

I agree with you, Megan. These descriptions could apply to all adults - children or not. Further, I suspect each of us can relate to at least some of the descriptions. I certainly can, and roughness is part of my road. Grateful for your comment. ☺️

Thank you for putting this out, Ryan. πŸ™ It made me think of various things about my parents. And I can relate to the Emotional Parent type, I have lived 30 years of my life being hypervigilant of others moods. I really appreciate what you're doing.

It feels good to hear that these parental archetypes triggered reflection about your parents and how you relate to others. I understand what it's like to be "hyper vigilant of others moods." As you know, awareness of others' moods is healthy, but too much can cause us to lose touch with ourselves and our needs. I appreciate your comment, Hassaan. ✨
