Adult Children of Narcissistic Parents

Toxic Parents Want Free Rent in Your Head Forever: Healing for Adult Children of Narcissists & ACOAs –Does this sound like you? Are you the adult child of a narcissist? If so, you’re not alone. Join our free support group for adult children of narcissistic parents. Dealing with gaslighting and enmeshment is difficult for any victim of a narcissist, but when you’re the adult child of a narcissist (ACON) – even if you first  identified as an ACOA, it’s a lifelong issue that never seems to lose its grip on you – especially if you don’t know about toxic relationships and narcissistic personality disorder.

Is your mother a narcissist? Try this test to find out.

The adult children of narcissistic parents support group is for surviving the challenges of life caused by experiencing extreme childhood abuse at the hands of narcissists. You are not alone, there is help available. Our safe, secure group is for people like you, who want to heal and move forward in their lives.

If you were abused by a narcissist as a child, you may be an adult child of a narcissist (ACON). Many ACONs, often called “adult children” who may also be “children of alcoholics” (or other kinds of addicts) experience symptoms such as low self-esteem and depression. Their relationships with others are often tumultuous and difficult. They tend to distrust authority and frequently feel alienated from other people.

Formed as a result of the many requests for such a group from those who have been long-term members of our support group for family and friends of narcissistic partners, this group consists of those whose parents had NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder) as well as those whose parents had a Cluster B co-morbid condition.

The group is open to anyone who has experienced the abuse of a narcissist—mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, brother, sister, aunt, or uncle. An adult sibling with no children is welcome. If you are an offspring of someone who suffered from narcissistic personality disorder but did not express it in the family, you are also welcome.
