About the eBook

From the author of the New York Times bestseller, Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents, this handbook offers essential, practical solutions to help you “disentangle” from emotionally immature people, stand up for your self, and transform your relationships.

If you grew up with an emotionally immature, unavailable, or selfish parent, you may recall your childhood as a time when your emotional needs were not met or dismissed—and you may have lingering feelings of anger, loneliness, betrayal, and abandonment as a result. As an adult, you have fought hard to establish your own sense of self, and heal the invisible wounds caused by your upbringing.

But what about other emotionally immature people (EIP) in your life? EIPs are often unpredictable, volatile, and difficult to handle. They tend to be me-first people, with little regard for others. They may not respect you as an individual—which can be isolating, hurtful, and lonely. As an adult child of an emotionally immature parent (ACEIP), you may be particularly vulnerable to EIPs. But you are not powerless! If you’re tired of being emotionally hijacked by EIPs, this handbook can help you avoid common traps, build confidence, and stand strong in your self.

In this must-have guide, author Lindsay Gibson provides everyday solutions to help you manage relationships with any emotionally immature person. You’ll find practical insights and explorations into the most common challenges ACEIPs face, and practical guidance to help set boundaries and establish healthier relationships. You’ll also learn to handle difficult interactions with EIPs, understand their responses, and transform your relationships to build a happier life.  

It’s time to disentangle from EIPs! As an ACEIP, you have spent a lifetime compensating for others’ behavior and putting your needs last. With this handbook, you’ll find the information you need to understand how EIPs function, shift your own perspective regarding these relationships, and stand up for your self without guilt, shame, or fear.
