This site seeks to raise awareness of the impact of narcissistic parenting on children with a particular focus on why some children reject a safe, loving parent after divorce or family separation.
Each of us is born with a particular biological make up that helps to determine our personality. In addition the care, attention and teachings we receive from our parents and/or society shapes us into the people we become, whether we accept the teachings or rebel against them.
This website was first published in 2005 in order to share what I had learned through my own research into Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Codependency as a result of my own childhood. More recently I have had the unfortunate need to research the emotional cutoff children experience in the context of family breakdown.
I’m just an ordinary person, someone who reached a certain point in her life and realised something had gone wrong and I needed answers. Later, I needed answers for the next generation.
I am not a mental health professional. The only people who are qualified to determine the soundness of your mental or emotional state are mental health professionals. I am not a lawyer, I cannot provide any legal advice.
The findings of my research into the dynamics of relationships between adults, parents and their children is documented in this website. I hope it provides others with information on the basics of:
- Emotional cutoff
- Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)
- Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and
The site has links to other websites and books that I found useful in my research.
