The narcissistic mother (1)

The narcissistic mother

Many ot my patients have one or both parents with more or less narcissistic features. I will write a small story about narcissistic mother so that you can get an idea of how she behaves towards her children. In some cases narcissists can include their children in their narcissism but my experience is that most of the time that does not happen. Instead the parent steps on their child too in order to take care of his/her own needs.
Here comes the case example:
Vanessa had four daughters. She often braged about the fact that she was so good at taking care of children that she would have had six children if she hadn´t had the bad luck of meeting a man with alcohol problems. She was divorced from him and made people do favors for her making them feel sorry for her because she was alone with four children. While complaining about her bad marriage and that she had to do everything herself, she didn´t mention that her exhusband paid for everything concerning the children.
