Narcissistic parents abuse their children in subtle ways.
As a result of volunteering for a support group that helps abused adult children, I learned how exactly narcissistic parents behave. My goal with this post is to raise awareness of the emotional abuse that often stays hidden in families with narcissists and with those who enable their behavior.
Narcissistic parents are very dangerous to their children, because their abusive behavior can damage their mental health. The adult child does not know what it’s happening to him but suffers in silence.
Usually, narcissistic abuse leads to feelings of self-hate, a negative mindset or to toxic relationships that reflect the unhealthy dynamic at home.
