Are you outwardly successful but inwardly do you feel like a big kid? Do you aspire to be a loving parent but all too often "lose it" in hurtful ways? Do you crave intimacy but sometimes wonder if it's worth the struggle? Or are you plagued by constant vague feelings of anxiety or depression? If any of this sounds familiar, you may be experiencing the hidden but damaging effects of a painful childhood--carrying within you a "wounded inner child" that is crying out for attention and healing. In this powerful book, John Bradshaw shows how we can learn to nurture that inner child, in essence offering ourselves the good parenting we needed and longed for. Through a step-by-step process of exploring the unfinished business of each developmental stage, we can break away from destructive family rules and roles and free ourselves to live responsibly in the present. Then, says Bradshaw, the healed inner child becomes a source of vitality, enabling us to find new joy and energy in living. Homecoming includes a wealth of unique case histories and interactive techniques, including questionnaires, letter-writing to the inner child, guided meditations, and affirmations. Pioneering when introduced, these classic therapies are now being validated by new discoveries in attachment research and neuroscience. No one has ever brought them to a popular audience more effectively and inspiringly than John Bradshaw.… (més)

Using a wealth of practical techniques, informative case histories and unique questionnaires, John Bradshaw demonstrates how your wounded inner child may be causing you pain. You'll learn to gradually, safely, go back to reclaim and nurture that inner child - and literally help yourself grow up again. Homecoming shows you how to:

Validate your inner child through meditations and affirmations
Give your child permission to break destructive family roles and rules
Adopt new rules allowing pleasure and honest self-expression
Deal with anger and difficult relationships
Pay attention to your innermost purpose and desires...and find new joy and energy in living. ( )

I bought this book at the suggestion of a therapist I have been seeing. I did my best to work through the activities and ignore his constant attacks on my Catholic faith and religion in general.

What eventually led me to put down this book was Chapter 7: Reclaiming Your School Age Self. In this chapter, he shames the whole system and gripes about how schools are set up to harm children. He compares them to prisons and calls the grading system "very shaming and distressing" which "creates toxic shame." "In our schools," he says, "if you did not learn geometry as fast as other kids your age, you failed geometry." Essentially, this is a child's voice couched in pseudo-academic language. It sounds as if, years later, he hasn't gotten over the fact that math wasn't his strongest subject. I disagree with him on what he says here (and in many other places), and while reading it I feel he is trying to shame me with the "toxic shame" he so often decries simply because I disagree with him.

Throughout what I read, Bradshaw complains about how the world is out to hurt everyone. You'll begin to wonder how anyone makes it through life at all. His tone is whiny, self-righteous and sanctimonious. His book advocates embracing victim-hood instead of becoming a warrior who has overcome your problems.

If you want to remain a child with even greater problems, buy this book and start sucking your thumb. Otherwise, keep looking, and keep living. ( )

I have a cartoon I sometimes show in my workshops. It shows a huge auditorium with a banner hanging on the wall that says “Annual Convention of Adult Children of Normal Parents.” In this huge auditorium are scattered only a half-dozen attendees.

I have a client I’ll call John who has a brother one year older than he. John is a very responsible man by nature. He works hard, takes his commitments seriously, and generally does exactly what he says he is going to do. John's brother is still trying to “find himself.” John describes his relationship with his parents as “nothing great—just comfortable as long as I did what I was supposed to, which I always did.” John does not feel his parents were openly affectionate or demonstrative of loving or tender feelings for him. He accepts that about them, though he occasionally wishes they were otherwise. He has never doubted their love for him, though, or their earnest desire to see both of their sons become happy and successful. When John and his brother talk about their parents, John is shocked to hear him portray them as “cold, heartless people who can't give love.” His brother considers their childhood “abusive” and he blames them for his lack of success in establishing either a career or a relationship. John wonders if they had the same parents! When John says, “Aw, they weren't so bad. They gave us everything—even our college educations,” his brother looks at him angrily and says, “You’re so wrapped up in denial, I can’t believe it. Well, if you have the need to remember them as anything but abusive, I wish you luck in eventually coming to terms with the harsh reality of your childhood.” John actually starts to wonder whether he is repressing some terrible memories of his parents! But when the brothers compare memories, John sees that while he consistently finds in them evidence of his parents’ will for them to achieve success without sacrificing humility, his brother remembers the exact same experiences as evidence of emotional neglect and abuse.

Again we see how the “inkblots” of our lives can give rise to multiple interpretations, each of them plausible. But notice how John’s interpretations enhance his life, while those of his brother limit him. Both views “make sense,” but they clearly do not generate the same quality of consequence.

John offered a perspective about his brother's views that I found to be not only interesting but quite possibly true. John believes his brother feels better about himself by putting down his parents and thinking of his childhood as one involving emotional abuse. He makes comments about having “overcome adversity” and wanting John to see how far he's come since he left “that miserable family.”
