The Way A Child Become A Narcissists


I am often asked “What type of parenting leads children to grow up with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder?” Or “Are the children of Narcissistic parents at risk of becoming Narcissists themselves?” Today’s post may shed some light on this issue.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder?

Narcissistic Personality Disorders are a byproduct of certain childhood family environments. All children want their parents’ approval and attention. Children adapt to their homes, and often the most productive and reasonable adaptation to some home situations is to become a Narcissist.


Below are some common scenarios that can contribute to children becoming Narcissistic.

Scenario 1—Narcissistic Parental Values

In this situation the child is raised in a family that is very competitive and only rewards high achievement. One or both of the parents are Exhibitionist Narcissists. The family motto is: If you can’t be the best, why bother?

Love is conditional: When you come in first in the race, win the science fair, or star in the school show, you are showered with praise and attention. When you do not, you are a disappointment. Everyone in the family is supposed to be special and prove it over and over again. No matter how much you achieve, the pressure is never off. As one woman said: “When I came home with a report card with all A’s, my father asked me if anyone got an A+.”

Children in these families do not feel stably loved. It is hard for them to enjoy anything for its own sake, if it does not confer status. Instead of being supported by their parents to explore what they like and want to do more of, they only receive support for high achievement. Their parents are not interested in their children’s “real selves,” they are mainly interested in how their children can make the family look good. They want to be able to brag to their neighbors: “Look at what my kid did!”

The children who grow up in homes like this only feel secure and worthwhile when they are successful and recognized as the “best.” The conditional love of their childhood and the over evaluation of high status and success in their home sets in motion a lifelong pattern of chasing success and confusing it with happiness.

Example: John and his Life on Paper

John, a brilliant and successful man with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder, told me that he was coming to therapy because he knew that had lost his way. Nothing he did seemed to have any real meaning for him. He said, “I have a 'resume' life. Everything about me looks good on paper. Even my hobbies are cool. But somewhere along the way I lost touch with who I really am. I no longer feel much genuine pleasure in my accomplishments. I started out enjoying what I do well, but now I do it only because it impresses other people. Inside I feel empty.”

Guy Refuses To Pay $126 For His Date’s Food, So She Shows Him Her True Colors

In the old days, when women were less likely to work and earn their own money, it became normal for the man to pick up the bill while dating.

In some cultures, this hangover from the past is still very much the accepted norm, while in countries like Denmark for example, men insisting on paying for everything can be seen as rude.


First dates can be an awkward social minefield in general, and this little ambiguity only adds to the confusion. Reddit user u/CuteBananaMuffin decided to share his story recently, and it’s fair to say, his date was definitely the old-fashioned type.

After doing the progressive (and frankly, fair) thing on the first date, he thought he’d try to ask her out again. He obviously thought it had gone pretty well, and perhaps it had, up until the fateful moment the restaurant bill appeared. Scroll down below to check out how this entitled woman responded to his request.

Tweets From Mom And Dad Which Are Actually Freakin’ Hilarious

Who said that parents aren’t funny? We’ve all heard of tragic “dad jokes” and Mom’s embarrassing the life out of their kids, but sometimes we can be genuinely freakin’ HILARIOUS, okay?! It’s good sometimes to have a giggle at the expense of our kids- it’s healthy and therapeutic- and this is exactly what these parents have been doing recently on Twitter.

We wish we could think of comebacks half as incredible as these. Moms, Dads, take a bow…
