Parenting

If you have narcissistic parents, they are very critical of you and will always put you down. They tend to be extremely self-centered and have a lot of unrealistic expectations for their children.

For example, they may expect you to do well in school or excel at sports. If they don’t succeed in these areas, they will take it out on you instead of trying to help you with your goals. This can lead to low self-esteem and feelings of inferiority because your parents aren’t there for support when times get tough.
Narcissistic parents also tend to ignore your emotions and only see the good things about themselves and how wonderful they are which leads them to being overprotective as well as controlling. Narcissistic parents want their children to look up to them so if the child doesn’t show any interest in becoming like them, then that’s seen as rejection from the child’s part even though this is not what the parent wants at all!
The best way around narcissistic parents is by realizing that no matter how hard we try or how much we change ourselves, our parent won’t love us any less because they are still narcissists!
