“Daughters of Narcissistic Parents”

If these characteristics of Narcissistic Parents describe your parent and you are seeking a therapy group to help in your healing please ask our receptionists to process your application for participation in this group:

  • Everything [the narcissistic parent] does is deniable.

  • She violates your boundaries.

  • Narcissistic parents commonly choose one (sometimes more) child to be the golden child and one (sometimes more) to be the scapegoat.

  • She/He undermines.

  • He demeans, criticizes and denigrates.

  • She makes you look crazy. Always, she’ll blame you for her abuse of you.

  • She’s envious.

  • He’s a liar in too many ways to count.

  • She has to be the center of attention all the time.

  • She manipulates your emotions in order to feed on your pain.

  • He’s selfish and willful. He is never wrong about anything.

  • She’s self-absorbed.  She is never wrong about anything.

  • He is insanely defensive and is extremely sensitive to any criticism.

  • He/She terrorized.

  • If you refuse to let her manipulate you into doing something, she will cry that you don’t love her because if you loved her you would do as she wanted.

  • He doesn’t ask. He demands.

  • She shed her responsibilities to you as soon as she was able, leaving you to take care of yourself as best you could.

  • She seems to have no awareness that other people even have feelings.
