Narcs make deplorably bad parents.They are too focused on themselves to find children anything but an annoyance or a way to increase admiration and power. They view and treat their children only as extensions or reflections of themselves seeing them the way an advertiser sees a sign by the side of the road - as something to put their name on and use to build themselves up. Narcs deny their children's existence by insisting their children be and do what THEY want.
Dear Mom ... "Sometimes I feel sorry for you because you had a bad upbringing, but then I remember you are an adult, and you make your own bad decisions in life. A bad upbringing is not an excuse to be a bad parent."
