How Toxic Families Affect the People We Become

Written by Angela Atkinson

How does narcissistic abuse in childhood affect you when you grow up?

How does a narcissistic parent affect their kids? What effects do adult children of narcissists suffer?

What are the effects of codependency in childhood and of narcissistic parents (with NPD or even just narcissistic tendencies)? Many children of narcissists spend their whole lives thinking “I wasn’t good enough,” and wondering if their mothers/fathers/other caregivers could and would always be better than they.

The faces of parental narcissism have a number of effects on the children – and as they become adult children of narcissists (ACON), their personalities are formed around this sort of misunderstanding of themselves as seen through the eyes of the narcissistic parent.

If you have (or know) a child who has a narcissistic parent or grandparent, you may be asking yourself how you can help them cope and what you can do to avoid the negative effects of being the child of a narcissist.

Whether you’re dealing with a covert narcissist mother or an “out there” narcissist father or grandparent, you are or were dealing with gaslighting and manipulation, to say the very least. In this video, I’ll explain the effects on the children in various stages and also how you can help them combat it.

Are you the adult child of a narcissistic mother?

Have you been affected by narcissistic abuse in your childhood and now you’re struggling? Are your narcissistic parents still messing with your life? Are you considering going no contact with your narcissistic mother or father? There is help and support available for you.

Narcissists Fool You With False Empathy

Here’s the thing. When we say “narcissists have no empathy,” we don’t necessarily mean that they’re not capable of figuring out what you’re feeling. What we mean is that narcissists don’t FEEL empathy in the same way as most people do. They have no compassion, no remorse and they don’t feel regret – unless they regret a choice they made because it negatively affected them directly.
