What's the worst thing a parent can do to a child?

Therapy today and played "Talking, Feeling, Doing"

What's the worst thing a parent can do to a child? was the very first question that the game asked me.  Kiddo answered "not feed them".

The zillion things that have went on in her past, the food is the one she's having the biggest trouble with.

After we talked about that for a minute, the therapist asked if I could take my turn and answer it.  lol.

My answer was "not showing that you love your child".

We all talked about that for a minute too.  Kiddo decided my answer was "right".

Oddly, we all seemed to get the appropriate questions for either our situation or showing what we needed to show each other.

Kiddo got the question "have you ever considered running away and what happened?"  She used to run away alot before getting to us.  She's run to the front yard and back yard twice since here and packed twice since here and once threatened at the beach.  She totally did NOT want to answer that question.  She answered based on her past house and diverted with "running into a tree".  Her therapist did ask if she'd tried running since with us and where she ran to.  She told her she ran to the building with comic books and sat in a chair reading of course.

I think I may order that game.  It's pricey, but if we can play as a family from time to time, it may help us long term.

On the fence whether it'd be as productive in an uncontrolled setting.

Despite the resistence to playing, at the end of the session, sher went thru 5 cards by her own initiative. I think she enjoyed it.
