Childhood emotional neglect is a painful experience that can leave deep emotional wounds. It occurs when a child's emotional needs are not met, leading to feelings of emptiness, confusion, and isolation.

This kind of neglect can happen for various reasons and may include situations where a child's feelings are dismissed, ignored, or invalidated. It's not uncommon, and it often begins at a young age, making children more susceptible to its lasting impact.

The effects of childhood emotional neglect can be long-lasting, affecting how individuals cope with life's challenges.


It may lead to:

  • Feelings of depression
