We all know unhappy people who are over-achievers, or who act superior and put others down. Often, these behaviors stem from mother or father "complexes". Based on her 20 years' detailed studies of infant and child behavior, psychologist Verena Kast shows us how early parental ties affect us throughout our lives and how we can still break free from the effects of negative relationships with our parents.
