A parent's PTSD symptoms can be directly linked to their 
child's responses. Children can respond in certain ways:

* The "Over-Identified" child might feel and behave like
their parent as a way of trying to connect with the parent,
so the child might show many of the same
symptoms as the parent with PTSD.

​* The "Rescuer" child takes on the adult role to
fill in for the parent with PTSD. The child acts
too grown-up for his or her age.

* The "Emotionally Uninvolved" child gets little emotional
help resulting in problems at school, depression,
anxiety (worry, fear), and relationship problems later in life.
