Gaslighting and Triangulation:Narcissism in Parents

Narcissism in parents creates tremendous emotional abuse in children. Narcissistic mothers and fathers emotionally abuse their children in overt as well as covert ways. Here are some of the forms of emotional abuse, narcissistic parents cause their children.

Parentification–when a child learns it is their responsibility to take care of their parent, which often involves the loss of childhood.

Infantilization-when a child learns to depend on their parent to their own detriment, for the parent’s sake of a sense of self.

Triangulation-when a parent controls what happens between two siblings, or joins forces with one sibling against the other. This can also happen to anyone.

Narcissistic Supply-when a parent finds various ways to live through their child, use their child, for the purpose of gaining a source of narcissistic supply.

Gaslighting-when a parent lies to a child and causes the child to question their own reality, or insists that the child did not hear what they heard, for the sake of causing the child to become emotionally confused.

Narcissistic parents can also antagonize their children for the sake of upsetting them and gaining control over them.

The good news there are things we can do to minimize the impact of narcissistic abuse.

It’s so important to especially remember to do what you can to refuse to accept the shame that often comes as a result of being raised by a narcissistic parent. We sometimes falsely presume it’s our fault our parents could not love us the way we needed.

Children of narcissistic parents, who are now suffering from codependency symptoms, may be struggling to learn how to love themselves after narcissistic abuse. Narcissists tend to attract people pleasers or codependent personalities. Because codependents are eager to please, because they seek outside validation, they are easy targets for narcissistic lovers, and friends.

It is not easy to learn how to love yourself after narcissistic abuse, but with the right codependency recovery tools, it is possible. It is even possible to find love after codependency.
