Book by Greta Thunberg’s Mother Termed ‘Horrifying Reading,’ Reveals Psychological Abuse

June 3, 2019 (EIRNS)—In reviewing the book Scenes from the Heart written by Malena Ernman, mother of the 16-year-old climate fanatic Greta Thunberg, Danish journalist Mikael Jalving calls it “horrifying reading,” as it reveals how Greta Thunberg and her sister have been victims of their mother’s psychological abuse. In comments to the Danish tabloid BT, reported by Sputnik today, Jalving refers to Thunberg as a “poor thing,” trapped in a “disintegrating family.” His review appeared in the May 24 issue of the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten.

Malena Ernman was an opera singer who dragged her children along with her as she toured the world.

“This book contains a story of failure,” Jalving said. Greta Thunberg in the past had been diagnosed with depression and an eating disorder, and currently suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism. Her younger sister Beata has been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder, Asberger’s, and OCD.

Jalving told BT that, instead of addressing why both her daughters are so ill, Ernman focused on making Greta Thunberg a star. Consider that “Greta’s diagnoses are about never having roots in her childhood. They have been moving around like a family of jugglers. It’s a very celebrated life on the surface, but the daughters have been dragged along,” he tells BT. Of Greta Thunberg, he opines, “I think ‘poor girl.’ She would like to be an adult, but has not been allowed to be a child. Her childhood is gone, and now she is a kind of grown-up child.” Mother Ernman’s career has ended, he stated, “which is why she has kidnapped her eldest daughter and is using her skills.”

Jalving praised Thunberg’s efforts to “save” the environment, Sputnik reports, but argued that she is part of a “devilish covenant” with her mother. “The family is in deep crisis ... the book should have never been published, but instead one should have tried to help the family. The book is a cry for help,” he concluded.
