Group Description

This group is for adult children of Narcissistic parents.

[This is NOT a group for adult entertainment! . . . if you are looking for adult entertainment, please go elsewhere.]

These parents typically look to the child to meet their needs. This expectation is harmful to the child's overall mental health, which carries into adulthood. It is very similar to children raised in alcoholic homes. These homes appear "Normal and Healthy" to the outside world It is only the children who suffer, and suffer alone. In homes such as these, the child's job is to make sure the parent's needs are being filled. In doing such, their identity, their "true feelings" are stuffed deep within them. THEY know something isn't right...but the family looks so perfect on the outside, often it is the child who is blamed.
Children from these homes are often overlooked, because the adult narcissist will make sure things "look good" on the outside. Children will not really understand what their feelings are, because the true expression of feelings is discouraged in a house run by a narcisstic parent. Often the child struggles alone.

The group is restricted and self-moderated - intended to be a nurturing place for learning, validation, and thoughtful discussion.
If this sounds like you.....please join.

"Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday."


Kahlil Gibran
