Narcissistic parents affect children profoundly.
There are many people, maybe you, who suffered parenting from a mother and/or father who was entitled, self-absorbed, demanding and no matter what you did it was never good enough.
Or maybe this parent was simply too busy or entrenched in their own stuff to be available emotionally for you.
Of course, parents do the best they can with the resources they have … yet narcissistic parenting takes abuse to another level.
Those affected by a narcissistic caretaker, struggle to develop into adults feeling whole, capable, emotionally solid and able to generate their own life healthily – because of not being able to establish their own values, needs, voice or rights.
