My own mom is wonderful and isn't on this list. But I have sadly dealt daily with a mom like this. I wish there was a cure for narcissism. No child should be raised in this environment.

Reminds me of my Narcissistic Mother In Law and how her adult children's are always turning a blind eye towards her bad behaviour. My narcissistic mother in law got all her adult children to worship and fear her.
