It’s Impossible to Control a Narcissist’s Behavior

 

It’s important to understand that it’s impossible to control a narcissist’s behavior. Neither the narcissist’s spouse nor children are responsible for his/her behavior. Narcissists are who they are. The best the other parent can do for their children and themselves is to separate themselves as much as possible from the narcissist.

It’s important that both children and spouses of narcissists have someone outside the situation to support and validate their feelings and reality while trying to cope with a crazy-making narcissist.

Spouses also need to hire a lawyer who understands narcissism and how to best deal with it in court. It’s often best for abused spouses to seek full custody of the children. They should, however, be prepared to offer reasonable visitation. In addition, spouses of narcissists will do well to put as many negotiation points about the children as they can think of in the divorce decree.  These include visitation, pick-up times, phone calls, school activities and vacations.  It may seem excessive or restraining but in the long run these written agreements will often be easier than a constantly renegotiating with an unreliable and emotionally abusive former spouse.

Divorce is not easy on children.  Coping with a narcissistic parent makes a stressful situation even more difficult.  Learning to identify the games narcissists play can help parents to minimize the emotional abuse children suffer at the hands of a narcissistic parent.
