There's a book out there called "Princess Bitchface Syndrome". The author is a psychologist who's methods in this book teach parents to take no accountability in their actions nor to reflect on their parenting styles. It completely absolves them of any responsbility and places blame squarely on the shoulders of the young teenage daughter. This book ruined my life, it's the reason I went homeless at age 16. I'm not the only one, I found reviews of other young girls who had abusive parents that turned to this book as a means to justify their shitty personalities and poor decision making abilities. Everything my mother was doing was page for page taken from this piece of shit book.
I know this took a rather dark turn but I had been wanting to vent about this for a while. The author has a very negative view towards young teenagers, semeingly treats them as being unable to think or generally make rational decisions. For example, this review:
"What did I just read????? This book lost me after the first few pages when an example father figure referred to his daughter as 'the fruit of his loin'. Excuse me while I go vomit!!!!
I thought this book would be interesting and provide some good examples about how parents and teen girls can get along better. It provided absolutely no help or tips or guidance, just rambled on repeating over and over again that they have mature bodies but their brains aren't developed.
I'm sorry, not all teenagers are stupid and disorganized. They're a lot smarter and better at making decisions than you are giving them credit for. The main problem they have is figuring out their place in the world, realizing that their parents aren't perfect and that they need to learn and grow outside of their families. How can their families support and guide them from a distance while still maintaining loving relationships. A lot of people struggle with this but this book provided no tips on how to do this.
This book is pointless, don't wast your time."
And this one:
"my abusive birth mother bought this book about a year before she was removed from my life by child protective services. This book helped her justify her systemic abuse; she called me 'Princess Bitch Face' every single day for several months. "
