What is narcissistic parental abuse and parental alienation?
Narcissistic Parental Abuse
If you had a narcissist for a parent you are probably still bearing the wounds.
Narcissists cannot parent. They lack empathy and children need an empathetic parent to understand what they are wanting and feeling from the second they take their first breath.
They will use their children in whatever way they can – keep a partner trapped, give them status, offer them emotional support.
But the child gets nothing in return.
Characteristics of Narcissistic Parents
- favouritism of one child over the others
- highly critical
- bullying behaviour
- will try and turn them against the other parent with lies or over the top gestures (usually involving money)
- severe disciplinary methods
- inconsistent attention
- withdrawing from child
- parental alienation
A narcissist will attempt to alienate you from the life of your child for many reasons.
- narcissistic injury
- to hide abuse
- pathogenic parenting
Whatever the reason, the outcomes are the same.
Impact of Parental Alienation on the Parent
- criminal conviction
- social isolation
- psychological, emotional and verbal abuse
The outcomes for children of having a narcissistic parent are not good either:
Impact of Having A Narcissistic Parent
- low self esteem
- behavioural problems
- child tries hard to be perfect and gets disproportionately upset when they make a mistake
- struggles to form relationships with peers
- isolates themselves
- depressed and suicidal
Learning to deal with the realisation of having a narcissistic parent can take time and hurt like hell. Childhoods are stolen and life will be a battle. But you can learn to manage the situation for both yourself and your children and together we can nurture you towards a more hopeful and free life.
Why The Nurturing Coach
When I was experiencing narcissistic abuse and parental alienation, I wanted someone who understand and helped me to find myself again. I couldn’t find anyone with this expertise so, once I felt stronger, I decided to use my experience as a social worker and retrain as an NLP Practitioner.
My role is to hold your hand. To understand and console. To push you when you need pushing, congratulate when you have excelled and nurture you to recovery.
My desire is to work with you to create a new version of you. A stronger, more hopeful and wiser version who is excited about the world and their life.
