10 Characteristics of Those Who Grew Up With Childhood Emotional Neglect


Childhood Emotional Neglect is an ordinary, unremarkable experience that takes place in a host of homes, to hosts of children, every single day. Many such homes are downright loving and caring in every other way.

CEN is a painful process that leaves its mark on the child, who will grow up to suffer its results. Compounding the problem is the strong likelihood that the child, now an adult, will have no memory of what went wrong.

  • Feeling Of Emptiness- 
  • Counter-dependence
