This study reveals the ripple effect of parental trauma on children. Ripple effect refers to how small changes occurring at the micro level can have a greater impact at the macro level. Our every action creates a series of ripples outwards affecting others and causing a larger impact.  Parental trauma means when a parent is troubled by their trauma in life and is unable to give proper love, care, and affection to their child, and thus the child is neglected. The children also have emotional or physical repercussions of their parent’s trauma due to which they may develop personality issues later in life. Personality is how a person thinks, feels, and behaves in day-to-day life which distinguishes him from others and is affected by childhood experiences. The single case study method has been used in this research paper. Data collection is done via interview technique. The result confirms the ripple effect of parental trauma on the children.
