Yeah it's a nice term for something pretty heinous.

I'm sorry you had to deal with that. Childhood experiences stay with us our whole lives, but they don't have to define us.

Often, those who are subjected to abuse and neglect when they are young repeat the behavior. So don't blame yourself if you've inadvertently picked up any bad behaviors. Reenacting trauma and bad experiences is a way for young minds to try to get some sense of control.
