It’s Narcissist Friday!
The past weeks have been full of hospitals, surgeries, and doctors for our family once again. The best I can do for today is refer you to an article a friend sent on from the NY Post. It should make for interesting discussion. The world is trying to figure out the “narcissism epidemic” they are seeing. I think the following article is simplistic and misses some of the more hidden and painful reasons children become narcissists, but it would still be great for parents to follow these suggestions. We have talked before about the idea that all narcissists were pampered and adored as children. That simply is not the case. Some were and some grew up to expect that in life, but most (in my opinion) were far more damaged by the manipulative and inconsistent acceptance from parents.
Well, read the article and let us know what you think. (And if anyone has access to the study this article refers to and is based on, send me a link or a pdf. I would love to read the whole study.)
