Does every conversation with your co-parent end in drama and threats?

Do you feel helpless to protect your children from an self-absorbed, entitled parent?

Does your co-parent behave in ways that leave your children hurt and confused?



The demands of parenting are hard-- even when we have the support of a loving co-parenting partner.

But when our child's other parent adds to the challenges of raising kids, daily life can be overwhelming.

People with narcissism are incapable of empathizing with the needs and feelings of others. They often insist on having their wishes met regardless of the cost to those around them -- including their children.

The ongoing conflict generated by a narcissistic co-parent creates insecurity, confusion, and pain for children.

In addition, when a narcissistic co-parent routinely undermines your rules and routines, parental solidarity goes out the window.

Join Susan Stiffelman and Wendy Behary to learn more about Narcissistic Personality Disorder. You'll hear about what not to do when seeking the cooperation of a narcissistic co-parent.

And you'll also learn how you can reduce the harm of a narcissistic parent on a child's confidence, security, and sense of self.
