Shame vs. Guilt (continued)


Here are examples of toxic shame:

  • Parents criticizing a child for dropping out of college because they believe it will ruin their opportunities for a productive life.

  • Managers at work loudly criticizing an employee in front of others for a task that is either incomplete or not in the manner in which the managers desired.

  • Children in school shunning other children.
