Quite often, they are not willing to make changes themselves and have a different perspective about their members problems. Like, “he/she does it on purpose to irritate me/us”, “he/she has always been shy, scared and dependent on me/us”, “he/she never learns, is always down, what can I do”, “he/she is just crazy “. “I never said/did that”. Which can have a toxic effect on the individual, especially a child/adolescent.
