mind-bending confusion

Each item below identifies a parental or adult behaviour that is violent but ‘invisible’ because people would not ordinarily perceive the behaviour as damaging. The bracketed section identifies one or more likely responses of the child although the precise response(s) will obviously vary from one child to the next. The responses might be feelings and/or behaviours; they might be copies or reactions.



  • treat child as a tabula rasa - ‘blank slate’ (child will come to believe that it has no innate, genetically programmed
    capacity for functional behaviour)
  • pretend, despite negative feedback from the child, that interfering with the genetic programming of the child is both
    loving and necessary (child will learn to identify abuse as love)
  • do not listen to child’s thoughts and feelings (child will learn to not listen to itSelf thus destroying its internal
    communication system)
  • do not listen to and accept child’s explanations of its behaviours (child will develop dysfunctional behaviours such as
    lying and/or wriggling out of acceptance of responsibility)
  • pretend to listen to child, perhaps in a ‘knowing’ way, while waiting for the earliest opportunity to interrupt it to get
    attention for yourself (child will feel enormous fear, pain and anger, of which it will need to suppress its awareness, as it
    is denied the opportunity to talk about something important to it and is required to give its attention to you at the same
    time)
  • dogmatically refuse to listen to child (child will develop authoritarian - intense fear of being out of control - or
    fundamentalist - intense fear of being wrong - ‘personality’)
  • do not allow child to listen to (that is, pay attention to) itSelf by chronically interfering with its natural inclination and
    capacity to do so, for example, by comforting or distracting a child that is crying, reassuring a child that is scared,
    frightening a child out of being angry (child’s natural capacity to become Self-aware will be destroyed)
  • interfere with child’s natural (e.g. exploratory) behaviours (child will become fearful of acting out its natural Self-
    will)
  • chronically interfere with child’s genetically programmed exploratory behaviours (child will develop anatomical,
    physiological, emotional, intellectual and/or behavioural dysfunctionalities possibly including mental illnesses such as
    anorexia nervosa, obsessive-compulsive disorder, paranoia and/or phobias)
  • do not communicate (truthfully) with child (child will not have accurate information as one of the bases for its actions
    and will become increasingly dysfunctionalised)
  • do not let child communicate with you, especially about your violent and damaging behaviours (child will have no
    avenue for meaningfully resolving conflict and will become increasingly dysfunctionalised)
  • terrorise child out of telling the truth about, and resisting, parental violence (child will suppress its awareness of the
    truth and be powerless to respond to this violence and the violence of others)
  • do not respond to child’s requests or its feedback about your dysfunctional behaviours (child will be reduced to
    powerlessly whingeing and complaining)
  • interfere with child’s communication (child will develop communication dysfunctionalities, which usually obscure its
    actual needs, such as compulsive talking, stuttering, lying, hinting and signalling)
  • routinely interrupt child (child will become fearful of both expressing itSelf and of listening, and will learn to
    interrupt others)
  • persistently thwart child’s initiatives to do things for itSelf (child will eventually learn to quit easily and might even
    develop a chronic unconscious tendency to thwart and punish itself as a manifestation of its self-hatred for failing to get
    what it wanted)
  • keep interfering with child (by frightening it in any number of ways), despite all of its defences, until its submits to
    parental will and then deny child the time and space to feel its fear, pain, anger and sadness about this interference and
    its consequent submission (child will be terrorised into surrendering its own Self-will)
  • powerlessly appeal to one child for pity, sympathy and/or support when your violent behaviour is challenged by a
    second child (first child will learn to perform a ‘guard dog’ function which it will then perform throughout its life;
    second child will powerlessly vent its anger on first child instead of you)
  • project onto child that it is your parent and that it is responsible for caring for you (child will be caused enormous pain
    and must grapple with mind-bending confusion)
  • project onto child that you are not the child’s parent (or carer) and that it should have no expectation that you will care
    for it (child will be caused enormous pain and must grapple with mind-bending confusion)
  • demand that child gives you your due respect and gratitude as its parent (child will be caused to feel fury)
  • present a delusion of always being ‘in control’ (child will learn to fear unusual challenges that nurture initiative and
    creativity, and will probably end up deluding itself that it needs to be, and is, ‘in control’ as well)
  • pretend to child that you are something that you are not (child might become as delusional as are you)
  • pretend to be and perform a set of social roles rather than being your natural self (child will learn to fearfully act out
    social roles rather than have the courage to become its genuine Self, warts and all)
  • be anxious with child (child will learn to fear but also have sympathy for anxiety and will probably develop an anxiety
    disorder, as well as other dysfunctionalities, of its own)
  • compulsively seek child’s reassurance to deal with your anxiety (child will unconsciously learn to reassure your
    dysfunctional anxiety in the ways that you require and might develop an anxiety disorder of its own)
  • take child for granted (child will develop a low sense of Self-worth and will learn to not appreciate others)
  • do not let child have what it wants (child will feel stuck, trapped and frustrated, and will probably become greedy)
  • do not let child do what it wants (child will feel stuck, trapped and frustrated, and will behave increasingly
    dysfunctionally and compulsively, although these dysfunctionalities will not necessarily be easily traced to your
    behaviour)
  • do not let child say what it wants (child will develop communication and behavioural dysfunctionalities as it keeps
    trying to meets its needs)
  • let child say what it wants and then ignore or deny it (child will develop communication and behavioural
    dysfunctionalities commensurate with frequency of occurrence)
  • define child’s needs and wants for it (child will develop a warped sense of what it needs and wants)
  • deny child simple pleasures (child will become addicted to seeking pleasures beyond those that meet its genuine
    needs)
  • never allow child to have its preference (child will become obsessed with getting its own way in all contexts)
  • ‘give’ to child on condition that it allows you to control it (child will learn that the purpose of giving is to gain control
    over others)
  • never tell child how you are feeling (child will learn to fear its own feelings as well as your feelings)
  • never talk about feelings (child will learn to fear talking about its own feelings and the feelings of others)
  • do not love child (child will feel that it is unlovable and will not develop the capacity to love itself and to love others)
  • behave as if you do not need love (child will feel as if its love is worthless)
  • behave as if love does not exist (child will not develop the capacity to love or it will learn to suppress and give up
    using its capacity to love)
  • do not value child (child will learn to not value itSelf and to not value others or the Earth, and will behave
    accordingly)
  • do not acknowledge child’s help or positive contribution (child will feel lack of acknowledgment as a disincentive to
    help or contribute)
  • do not show your greater security or happiness when child helps you (child will feel the futility of trying to facilitate
    change for the better)
  • do not let child interrupt you even when it needs attention for something important (child will learn to fear those who
    pay close attention to themselves and what they are doing, and may develop a compulsion to interrupt or even violently
    interfere with people who do this, particularly their own spouse and children, in order to get attention for themselves)
  • conspicuously behave as if you are superior to child (child might become sycophantic of ‘authorities’)
  • ‘play the hero’ to child (child will be disempowered so that it cannot defend and protect itself)
  • play a ‘Poor me, I need help’ role with child (child will learn to sympathetically assist powerless and dysfunctional
    people like yourself)
  • tell child ‘You are only a child’ (child will develop a low sense of Self-worth and Self-love)
  • convey to child by attitude, words and/or deeds that it was ‘an unwanted accident’ (child will feel enormous fear and
    pain – of which it will suppress its awareness – at not being wanted and loved, and will not develop the Self-worth and
    Self-love necessary to expect to be involved in loving relationships and, for example, will probably choose an abusive
    spouse)

  • require child to ask for what it needs and then say ‘no’ (child will become fearful both of taking what it needs for
    itSelf and of asking for what it needs from others)

  • force child to sit in chairs for long periods e.g. at school (child will develop postural, movement and/or physiological
    dysfunctionalities)
  • teach child, that is, require child to do something that you want precisely as you prescribe (child’s natural interest,
    initiative and creativity in learning something new is crushed as it fearfully, mindlessly and powerlessly imitates you; it
    will also learn, and this is reinforced by experience at school, that learning requires mindless copying)
  • routinely convey message to child through attitude, language and/or behaviour that child is a failure (child will
    experience enormous fear, pain and anger which, unless expressed, will later manifest as vindictive behaviour in
    ‘defence’ of its now-warped sense of self)

    responding with derision, perhaps by laughing, when they complain)
  • punish child when it has done nothing wrong and then scare it out of being angry about this (child will be compelled
    to suppress awareness of its anger and might react by delighting in getting innocent people into trouble)

    to threaten, intimidate and/or punish others)
  • threaten, intimidate and/or punish child to make it accept your perception of itself, others and reality generally (child
    will lose control of its own mind and become a fearfully obedient slave full of unconscious self-hatred)
  • behave threateningly much of the time so that child lives in a permanent state of fear (child will develop a range of
    behavioural, anatomical and/or physiological dysfunctionalities possibly including such problems as chronic muscle
    tension, constipation and an inability to relax and/or sleep)
  • frighten child into submission by using threats and punishments but also some inducements (child will learn that it is
    futile to resist violence and to fearfully placate violent people by ‘helping’ or collaborating with them in the
    dysfunctional ways that they require)
  • threaten child with punishment if it does not collaborate with you in abusing other children (child will learn to
    fearfully betray others to avoid punishment of itself, thus deepening the child’s unconscious sense of self-hatred)

    for itself)
  • take revenge on child for what your parent(s), teachers and/or other adults did to you (child will powerlessly learn to
    not hold the responsible person accountable and to take revenge on innocent parties)
  • inflict emotional and/or physical pain on child (child will initially experience this pain but will progressively learn to
    suppress its awareness of the pain as it is denied opportunities for feeling it; child will also learn to inflict pain on
    others)
  • repeatedly force child to do things that don’t meet your actual needs and never feel satisfied with or grateful for what
    child has done for you (child will feel the pointlessness of helping and then fail to help others who genuinely need and
    can use it)
  • force child to do what you want (child’s unconscious fear and self-hatred will increase each time it submits to your
    will; it will also learn that relationships are based on dominance and submission, not cooperation, and it will behave
    either dominantly or submissively in all social contexts depending on the situation)
  • keep pushing and pushing child to do what you want (child will be terrified that it is not allowed to choose freely and
    will behave increasingly dysfunctionally)
  • go berserk at child when it tries to help you using its own initiative (child will become terrified of taking independent
    action to help anyone)
  • blast child for doing things you don’t want and never give positive feedback for anything it does for you (child will
    try to avoid blasts and will become indecisive and incapacitated by lack of positive feedback)
  • threaten or attack child to convey what you do not want it to do and then fail to give it credit for avoiding doing these
    things in future (child will experience ongoing loss of energy as it restricts its own life for your benefit and will
    experience confusion, powerlessness, anger and resentment at the lack of acknowledgment and gratitude for what it is
    giving up)
  • force child to act against its own will (child will learn to be coercive)
  • force child to do something that it finds terrifying because you are too frightened to defend it and also too frightened
    to accept responsibility for feeling your own fear (child will be terrorised)
  • force child to do something that is terrifying for it because you are too frightened to do something less terrifying but
    also too frightened to accept responsibility for feeling your fear about this (child will be terrorised into doing something
    beyond its capacity and will learn that putting someone else ‘in the rat cage’ is the way to deal with situations in which
    it lacks the courage to do what feels frightening)
  • treat child as a slave (child will learn that it is worthless and treat other people as worthless too)
  • never accept responsibility for your mistakes and failures (child will learn to evade responsibility for its mistakes and
    failures)
  • harp on child’s mistakes and failures (child will learn to fear mistakes and failures, and to dogmatically refuse to
    acknowledge them, rather than learning to perceive mistakes and failures as valuable learning experiences)
  • punish child when it does something ‘wrong’ (child will learn to fearfully deny responsibility for its wrongdoing
    rather than learning to fearlessly and functionally try again)
  • punish child for making mistakes (child will learn to fear making mistakes and will learn to evade responsibility for
    them rather than learning to powerfully regard them as valuable learning experiences)
  • force child to accept the blame for your mistakes and failures so that you can avoid responsibility for feeling the fear
    and pain this causes you (child will suppress its awareness of enormous fear, pain, anger and/or sadness, and learn that
    avoiding responsibility by blaming someone else - rather than some combination of retraction, apology, compensation
    and renewed effort - is the way to deal with mistakes and failures)
  • bribe child with, for example, confectionary and toys, to make it do what you want (child will learn that bribery is one
    way of getting what it wants and that this is an acceptable way of doing so)
  • blackmail child, for example, by threatening to withhold something it needs if it doesn’t do what you want (child will
    learn that blackmail is one way of getting what it wants and that this is an acceptable way of doing so)
  • extort attention, energy and/or time from the child (child will learn that extortion is one way of getting what it wants
    and that this is an acceptable way of doing so)
  • steal child’s attention, energy and/or time to use for your own purposes, for example, to listen to your compulsive
    talking or to do a task for you (child will learn that stealing is one way of getting what it wants and that this is an
    acceptable way of doing so)
  • deny child’s truth/reality and force it to believe your projection, for example, that child caused your feelings which are
    actually a projection from your own childhood with your parents (child will be caused enormous fear, pain, anger
    and/or sadness that, if suppressed, will cause child in turn to endlessly project these feelings onto future interactions
    with innocent parties such as siblings or, later in life, other adults and, of course, its own children)
  • present a positive picture of child’s life while ignoring and/or denying the negative experiences that are a part of it
    (child will learn to suppress its awareness of negative aspects of its reality and to act in denial of these, rather than to be
    aware of and respond intelligently and powerfully to them)
  • ignore and/or deny child’s experience and/or distract child from focusing on its own experience (child will learn to
    ignore, deny and distract itself from the reality of its own experience and, therefore, from social and ecological reality).
  • be intolerant of child and its unique ways (child will learn to fear its natural Self)

Every time that a child is terrorised into surrendering control of its own mind in order to act on the will of another, its unconscious fear, self-hatred, powerlessness and inclination to use violence increase. Thus, the child is taught to be violent towards itself, others and the Earth through an unending sequence of parental and adult behaviours (entailing acts of commission and omission) that, individually, might easily be overlooked or even dismissed as insignificant. In brief, the child’s natural Self suffers death by a thousand ‘invisible’ cuts.
