Toxic parenting can take on many different faces, but the end result is the same: emotionally damaged children. Sadly, toxic parenting is cyclic in some regards. Some of those who endured emotionally unhealthy childhoods create similar environments for their kids, thus perpetuating the cycle. The first step to breaking the cycle is to recognize the signs. Here are 10 tell-tale signs of toxic parenting.
