Silently Seduced : When Parents Make Their Children Partners : Understanding Covert Incest
Kenneth M. Adams
Synopsis - When a parent's love for a child is more expecting than giving, more jealous than trusting, the child can become trapped in a "psychological marriage" with the parent, becoming a victim of covert incest.

A welcome and required addition to the literature.
Over the last two decades, there has been a proliferation of research and writing on child maltreatment. Debates have ensued over children's memory, suggestibility, and truthfulness. Research has mushroomed on child sexual abuse and child abuse and neglect. There has even been focus on the perpetrator and the nonoffending parent. One area, however, has almost consistently been ignored: the area of sibling abuse. This book is a welcome and required addition to our developing literature on abuse.
