Other resources about child development or child abuse

  • Let Grow, a project to let kids have more freedom to play

  • Alice Miller, a psychotherapist who broke new ground with her books The Drama of the Gifted Child and For Your Own Good, which examined the emotional roots of child abuse, and the effects which children suffer. (Possibly due to a translation issue, "The Drama of the Gifted Child" isn't about "gifted" children in the academic sense. It's about kids who have demanding parents, who try very hard to please those parents, and suffer as a result.)

  • Pete Walker, a therapist who wrote the influential book Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving. (Pete suffered child abuse personally, and went on to overcome its effects.)

  • Support group subreddits here and here

  • Susan Forward, a therapist who wrote the classic book Toxic Parents, among others

  • Andrew Vachss, a lawyer who defends the victims of child abuse, and also author who has written about the importance of protecting children
