The environment in which Precious grew up in, is toxic, dysfunctional, and dangerous. The mother was abusive, verbally, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Precious was also sexually abused by her father since the age of three. The second cue I identified is the Mothers refusal to accept responsibility for her actions in the way she raised and treated Precious. It was clear in the counseling session that the Mother still blames Precious for her significant other not wanting her and eventually leaving her.
