it has been mentioned briefly a few times but I think there should be a podcast solely about infantalization.

Children who are infantilized are not taught basic skills in independence. Mom (and maybe dad) cheat them out of childhood lessons ironically damning them to not feeling "privileged" or "protected" like mommy and daddy told them they were.


I would guess a causation being dependence on government by our parents. "Our kids will get free stuff too!"


Infant people must learn basic individuation skills they were never taught and must avoid enablers and rescuers.


--some part-quotes from Dr. Faye Snyder's book on parenting, "The Manual"

I have heard a psychiatrist say that infantilization is as damaging as physical or emotional abuse. Its consequences in adulthood are as worse and harder to manage.
