“It’s part of our culture that we’re supposed to respect our parents, and I understand that that’s important. But sometimes that relationship does not work.”
As a child, did you absorb the belief that you’re not good enough. or that you don’t have the right to be your own person?
This is a telltale sign of having a narcissistic parent and the root issue behind other thought negative processes; issues around self-perception; and even one’s own parenting styles.
In this episode, I talk with clinical psychologist Dr. Stephanie Kriesberg, PsyD, who has personal experience in growing up with a narcissistic parent as well as a passion for helping others move forward from similar experiences. In this conversation, Dr. Kriesberg discusses what it’s like to have a narcissistic mother, and some of the dynamics inherent in this experience.
