My parents got some things quite wrong and I have spent my adult life learning about these things. This image was created when I had recently learned of more things which they did that weren’t normal or healthy. I’d also recently made the connection between how I was raised and why I have struggled to come to terms with being made redundant, and so my head was busy with “parent issues”. This image is a sarcastic take on how parents should treat their child and is in response to situations where I was treated less than ideally. My therapist pointed out that actually there is a lot of anger in this picture.
