What Is a Dysfunctional Family? • A dysfunctional family is one where improper and immature behavior of at least one parent damages the growth of individuality and healthy relational skills among family members. • A dysfunctional family is one where family members are negatively affected emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. • A dysfunctional family is one where everyone is negatively affected even when only one family member experiences a problem. Dysfunctional Families Produce Dysfunctional Families Dysfunction looks different in each family. Here are some of the ways dysfunction can creep into the family unit: • Overly possessive or faultfinding parents • Poor organization or overly rigid structure • Inconsistent and indecisive parents • Emotionally abandoned children (including emotional abuse) • Overly rigid structure or lacking parental authority How Do Kids Cope? 4 Dysfunctional Family Roles Children Adopt When parents are unable to manage their lives, children learn to cope by playing specific roles in the family or "acting out" in damaging ways. Typically, the child will adopt one of four roles: • The Responsible Child The "hero" tries to fix the family problems and help create a positive family image through noteworthy achievement. This child receives positive attention but often develops perfectionistic, compulsive behaviors. • The Rebellious Child The "scapegoat" draws focus away from the family's problems and onto himself or herself with rebellious, uncontrollable behavior. This child consumes time and energy from the family members and often develops self-destructive life patterns. • The Reclusive Child The "lost child" hopes that by ignoring family problems, the difficulties will go away. This child avoids attention and is often lonely and withdrawn. • The Reveling Child The "clown" uses humor and antics to direct the focus away from family problems. This child is often highly active or hyperactive and usually seeks to be the center of attention. A child may even display a combination of these traits or progress through different stages as they attempt to manage their emotional pain...just seeking to survive.

Here's just a few choices you (and those you are helping) can make to begin breaking free from the influence of your past. I will... • Give Christ first place in my heart.

Define who I am: "I am a child of God," and who I am not: "I am not a piece of property."

Description : In many ways, dysfunctional families are becoming the "new norm" in our society, affecting families in and outside the church. In this ebook, June Hunt explains the signs, characteristics, and impact dysfunctional families have on children's attitudes and behavior—revealing the ugly truth that dysfunction often produces more dysfunction. She presents practical ways to break the generational cycle of dysfunction—giving those who come from this background hope and equipping those who minister to them (pastor, church leader, or friend) with practical insight on how to help. Coming from a dysfunctional family can often make a person feel helpless—doomed to repeat the same mistakes and behaviors as their parents. June emphasizes that change is possible. Using the familiar Bible story of Joseph and his brothers, June reveals how God can use one family member yielded to Him to change the dynamics of an entire family.

Description : Do you feel free--unburdened by sin and guilt? Or, are you still dealing with guilt...still dealing with shame? Are you living life with a master list of "Do's and Don'ts" in your heart? When your faith produces false guilt and shame rather than reduces guilt, then you may have adopted a wrong perspective of God, thinking he expects you to be a perfectionist. This Christian book, Guilt, by June Hunt shows how to trade the burden of guilt and sin for the freedom found in God's truth and light. The more you know the true characteristics of God--love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness--the less "faslse" guilt and shame you will experience in relation to your own sin. There are all types of guilt; from the normal expression you feel when you actually are at fault to false guilt related to self-condemnation and unmet expectations. This Christian book explains the characteristics of false guilt, the negative mindsets that come from false guilt, the sources of false guilt, the physical symptoms of unresolved guilt, and the difference between guilt-ridden reactions to criticism and guilt-free responses. It also walks you through how to let go of guilt and accept God's freedom--for good. In the section titled, "Steps to Solution," June Hunt gives you practical advice on how to: • Set and reach new target goals--(new priorities, new purpose, and new plan.) • Distinguish true guilt from false accusations • Recognize Satan's lies • Forgive yourself and accept forgiveness • Live a guilt-free life God uses guilt to get our attention, but He never designed guilt to distress us forever. Learn how to identify true guilt that can lead us into healthy growth from false guilt that burdens us with shame. God set you free—learn how to live in the freedom he promises you!

Description : Manipulation--Cutting the Strings of ControlManipulation is the Number One guilt game played by narcissistic, controlling people. This means manipulative and controlling people try to make you feel guilty to get their own way, regardless of what's good for you. They'll accuse you of insensitivity or disloyalty or a lack of Christian kindness, in order to pressure you into giving your time, your money, or even yourself into doing what they want--even though you are not being led by the Lord to do so. In this mini-book on manipulation, you will learn what tactics are used by controlling people, why you have been manipulated, and how to stop being manipulated. In other words, this Hope for the Heart mini-book, Manipulation, gives Christians the confidence to say no to people so they can say yes to God. Did you know that there are several verbal and non-verbal types of manipulation? Spiritual manipulation is not often talked about, but very present in the Bible, and is very common today.

June Hunt gives you practical advice on: • The first 4 steps away from manipulation • How to discover your own manipulative maneuvers • 9 ways to say "No" to manipulators • How to answer common questions on manipulation • And much more. To stop being manipulated, you must sometimes say no to people so you can say yes to God.
