When a Parent has PTSD

​​
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.
