Signs of Emotional Neglect

Family forms an integral part of our lives. They are the people who love us unconditionally and are always there to lend any kind of support be it emotional, physical, mental, or financial. It is very important for a human being to have a happy family while growing up. While many of us enjoy a good childhood, they are some who were subject to emotional neglect by their families or parents.

In this article, we look at signs that depict emotional neglect by the parents.


One of the worst things a parent can do to their child is compare them with other family members or siblings. People should never compare their children as it results in low confidence, the feeling of being inferior, and many other mental traumas. It also spoils the relationship a person has with their siblings.


Your parents have some unexplained anger or resentment towards you. They treat you as per their mood and you often find them venting out their anger on you. It is a sign of emotional neglect when the parents are always having a go at their child. What makes the entire situation worst is that they don’t even feel guilty about their behavior.

Surface level conversations

There are no deep and meaningful conversations with your parents. Both of you converse just for the sake of talking. They avoid having long conversations with you and don’t take much effort to know your thought process. Also, your opinion doesn’t matter to them and they hardly ask your say while discussing the future as a family.
