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

Do you feel helpless to protect your children from the impact of an angry, arrogant parent?

Does your co-parent generate stress and disappointment that leaves 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 our children, day to day life can feel overwhelming.

Individuals 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 others--including their children.

The ongoing conflict generated between a parent and 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 discover some of the ways you can reduce the harmful impact of a narcissistic parent on a child's confidence, security, and sense of self.
