What's something TOXIC your parents said or did to you as a child?

What is something toxic or traumatic that your parents put you through as a child or even as an adult that you later realized was wrong?

I'll go first.

When I was, like, five or six my mom made me strip naked and told me to read a page in a book correctly or else I'd get a spanking. I started crying because I literally could not get it right and seeing her hold that belt intimidated me to the point where I could only focus on that. She would yell at me and wouldn't allow me to leave my room either and my dad was at work, so I couldn't call him. Eventually, I did read it perfectly and she said, "Was that so hard? Why couldn't you do that the first time?"
