"Were you raised by a parent who cared more for themselves than they did for you? Were they overly critical except when you reflected well upon them? Did you lack the experience of genuine nurturing and protection? Was your parent unresponsive to your needs? If so, you may be the child of a narcissistic parent. As a result, you may hide or deny your pain, become overly attached or fear attaching, suffer from unrelenting self-criticism or struggle to maintain boundaries. These are a few of the patterns most commonly seen with adults whose parent's were not readily attuned to their needs. "
