According to clinical psychologist Lindsay Gibson, there are four types of emotionally immature parents.
• Emotional Parents

Emotional parents are driven by their feelings.
They are fragile and tend to overreact to situations.
They get upset easily, and when they do, the entire family scrambles to soothe them.
