About This Book

Bad Child Guide To Surviving A Narcissistic Parent

This book is not intended to convince you that you have a narcissistic parent. The definition of a narcissistic parent comes down to your opinion. At the end of the day, toxic is toxic, and it doesn’t matter if they are narcissistic or just plain mean and bitter. Toxic is toxic.

Saying or thinking you have a narcissistic parent is not a diagnosis. It’s a description, and it’s perfectly acceptable to use this term to describe a person’s behavior. However, the only way a person can be diagnosed with a narcissistic personality disorder is if they walk into a therapist’s office and admit these behaviors are causing problems in their life. Short of that, someone with a full-blown narcissistic personality disorder is unlikely to go anywhere near a mental health professional unless they have an ulterior motive (like trying to get themselves out of trouble with family or the law).

It also doesn’t work trying to figure this out on your own. We don’t have enough information. So not only is our perception skewed, but there are also huge gaps in our knowledge of how healthy relationships work.

My hope for this book is to help you fill in some gaps, understand what’s not wrong with you, and give you an idea of how a person feels after going through all this.
