Munchausen syndrome by proxyWhat is the illness called when a parent purposely makes a child sick?
Besides immaturity I don't know what else is going on. But that is a part of it. I've seen this as well and I do grieve for the child who must waste so much of their life's energy overcoming the damage.
I pray they are able to see though the parental scam and keep a hold on their own self worth.
It is called Munchausen by proxy Syndrome
