The relationship of parents and children
Typical problems will show in different variations in concrete, specific cases. If the parent feels his/her child is behaving in an unexplainable way, if he/she cannot find the voice to talk to the child, if he/she feels that the child is obviously not enjoying the characteristic attributes of his/her childhood existence, it is likely that the child has taken a palce unsuited to what is due to that child.
This phenomenon is very frequent and it can show as learning difficulties or emotional conflicts. The causes can be found in the recent changes in the family system, or the surfacing if a pattern from the past which the child is seeking to rectify. That is how the child ends up in a role which is not proper to his/her place. The child will take responsibility for feelings that do not belong to him/her, only to compansate the balance of the system.
