The Golden Child Syndrome

0



It’s tough of course not to have been loved much by one’s parents; but there’s a real challenge too in having been loved too much, or rather, admired in a stifling unreal way that lies at the core of what we call ‘the golden child syndrome.’ Golden children aren’t – despite appearances – privileged at all; they suffer from the enormous burden of expectation placed on their too-young shoulders by over-eager parents.

“We are used to thinking of many of the psychological problems of adulthood as stemming from a lack of adequate love in our early years. We grow mentally unwell – prey to underconfidence, anxiety, paranoia and shame – because, somewhere in the past, we were denied the necessary warmth, care and sympathy. But there is another, more curious, and more subtle problem that may arise from childhood years: what we can term the Golden Child syndrome.”
