Much of society associates the terms “trauma” and “PTSD” with war veterans. Yet we forget about the children who grow up in war zones at home, who suffer psychological scarring at vulnerable developmental stages of their lives. The effects of verbal and emotional abuse at such a young age leaves a devastating mark in adulthood. The children of narcissistic parents are especially susceptible to these effects.
This is one of the most important articles I’ve written about the impact of having narcissistic parents. It addresses the five lifelong consequences we can suffer when we’ve been terrorized in childhood and steps on how to start healing – including how to cut the emotional umbilical cord with our abusive parents.
One thought on “The Psychological War Zone: 5 Ways Children of Narcissistic Parents Self-Destruct In Adulthood”
The Invisible War Zone by Shahida Arabi is a master piece. I pray every day for my children and hope the court system will understand and protect them. Keeping my fingers crossed and staying strong. Thank you for the article!
