Quiz: Have I Suffered From Emotional Abuse by My Parents?

Have you been struggling with controlling your emotions or feelings? Do you feel like you didn’t get all of the love and unconditional support from your parents that most people get? Do you feel like you were ignored or not cared about while growing up, and has it created issues that you still struggle with? 

First, you are not alone if you are feeling this way. And second, regardless of how many children experience this in childhood, it is not fair, and it should not happen.
