His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Joseph from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Joseph Mankiewicz felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way.

Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial.
