Are You Ready to Break Free From the Drama and Frustration of
Co-Parenting With a Narcissist…?
A 3-part Master Class with Susan Stiffelman and Wendy Behary
The Simple, Drama-Free Strategies My Clients Use To Co-Parent
With Self-Absorbed, Inflexible Parenting Partners
Does every conversation with your co-parenting partner end in drama and threats?
Do you feel helpless to protect your children from the fallout of an angry, arrogant parent?
Does your co-parent create constant stress and disappointment that leaves your children hurt and confused?
In this Master Class, you’ll learn how to:
- Cope with the narcissistic individual’s demanding, dismissing, and alienating behaviors so that you remain calm, cool and in control of your own responses
- Use leverage to set limits and maintain boundaries so that you no longer feel bullied or coerced by the narcissist
- Help children cope with a narcissistic parent so that they understand they are not the cause of the narcissist’s demeaning, unpredictable, or disappointing behavior
- Steer clear of adult temper tantrums, argumentativeness and rage so that you can maintain a more positive relationship
- Avoid power struggles and useless arguments so that you save time and mental energy that is better spent on you and your children
- Use specific language to diffuse tense situations and build a more productive relationship
Aside from the struggles to maintain a civil relationship, I know you’re worried about how growing up with a narcissistic parent is impacting your children.
Here are some of the possible challenges of children who grow up with a narcissistic parent:
- A tendency to seek out partners who are emotionally unavailable, critical or withholding
- Hyper sensitive to the moods of those around them
- Never feeling good enough
- Gain self-worth exclusively from achievements
- Drawn toward drama-laden, roller-coaster relationships – especially with romantic partners
- A sense of being unworthy of love
- A sense of responsibility for the feelings, care and welfare of others
- Rushing to maintain harmony and to soothe others feelings

The webinar you and Wendy did on co parenting with a narcissist was life-saving. I have been divorced for a long time but am still raising two children with my ex-husband who has made life as difficult as possible for me. What I learned from you both has made a huge difference in my ability to stay business-like and keep the focus on our children. I can’t thank you enough for these sessions and hope you will keep offering something for those of us desperate for help! K.B.
I have learned so much about dealing with narcissists from these classes. Not only is life easier with my narcissistic husband, but also with my mother, who fits the category. (History repeats itself!) Please keep up the good work! There is nothing else like this out there for parents needing this kind of information. Thank you so much! T. S.
