We will read from the Co-dependency, Attachments and Addictions chapter of my book Reconnected-How To Be A Mentor To Your Child-Self. Co-dependency is, “A set of maladaptive, compulsive behaviors learned by family members in order to survive in a family which is experiencing great emotional pain and stress.” If a person is “maladaptive,” they are displaying an inability to develop behaviors which get their needs met. Co-dependency is another form of unhealthy attachments.
