Confabulations, denial and lies are all part of game for a parent with narcissistic tendencies. Accepting responsibility, apologizing and correcting wrongful behaviors are typically not on the agenda. This reinforces the message of chaos and confusion for the child. Parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. Instilling doubt, fear, guilt or shame in a child promote problems that may never heal. These issues will impact the daily living and future relationships of that child into adulthood.
