Holidays With A Narcissist Parent


I grew up with one – a narcissist mother who never was satisfied with anything and expected the impossible from everyone.  The holiday season that was supposed to be filled with family get-together’s and love instead turns into a competition over who bought the best gift or who had the nicest Christmas decorations.

    Thanks for writing this article. I noticed how different some narcissists are. Mine never gave gifts during Christmas time. For them Xmas was all about cooking and eating their favorite foods (we kids were never ask what we’d like to eat), it was cold and mechanical. They never sent holiday cards also (or maybe in the past because I hardly remember this). Birthdays weren’t celebrated if it was ours (me and my brothers’) but my mother’s and father’s bday were kind of a big deal.

    I have raised my kids alone for 8 years. Once my kids moved in with me my ex wife has nothing to do with them except for her birthday and holidays. She try’s to text my boys. She never calls them. The holidays is just a week away and she shows up at one of my boys work. He wasn’t there but she made sure to let one of his coworkers know that she was there. My youngest has a lite form of autism and now he is worried sick about the holidays and what may happen, because my kid do go to their moms mothers house
