This picture captures the experience of many children with parents who have narcissistic tendencies. Seemingly, the parent presents as mother of the year in front of everyone else while the reality for the child is somewhat frightening. Notably, this makes the child feel unimportant. A child notices they are not loved enough to receive the ‘special’ treatment everyone else enjoys. This may leave a trail of emotional damage for the child with long-term negative consequences.
