In The Narcissistic Mother’s Game, a daughter shares her experiences (they are chilling) growing up with, well, let’s not mince words, a selfish, totally self-referential mother who got pleasure from hurting others.
The comments section shows that she is far from unique.
In fact,many daughters of narcissistic mothers are blogging, writing books, creating web sites and chat rooms—even becoming therapists so they can help others who’ve been through the same thing.
If you are the victim of a narcissistic mother (or father) or know someone who is, there are some helpful resources on the web (arranged in no particular order):
From the Web:
Parrish Miller Reprints Characteristics of Narcissistic Mothers Whew. Painful reading.
Will I Ever Be Good Enough? Site about book of same name. Helpful book and web site.
