The Drama of the Gifted Child
“Far too many adults today had to learn as children to hide feelings, needs, and memories in order to meet their parents’ expectations and win their love. Alice Miller writes, “When I used the word ‘gifted’ in the title, I had in mind neither children who receive high grades in school nor children talented in a special way. I simply meant all of us who have survived an abusive childhood thanks to an ability to adapt even to unspeakable cruelty by becoming numb–Without this ‘gift’ offered us by nature, we would not have survived.” But merely surviving is not enough. In The Drama of the Gifted Child, Alice Miller reveals that adults hold the power to free themselves from childhood pain and suffering.
