Understanding the dynamics of narcissistic parenting
Narcissism is challenging at the best of times to deal with let alone having been raised by a parent on the Narcissism spectrum.
In order to accommodate the narcissistic parent, the child must learn to adapt and mould to what it perceives are the parent's expectations. If not, the consequences can be severe! However part of maintaining a perceived position of superiority for the narcissist is that strategies are employed to see the child never measures up.
This continued message of never being enough can result in challenging consequences later in life.
Through understanding more of the dynamic and its potential consequences a person who had to endure this upbringing can begin to recover and take control of their lives.
A possibly challenging episode for some to hear but important for healing!
