Especially if the narcissist is the mother. I refer to this as conditioning. As a child, the narcissist conditions the child(ren) to not dare question her in public 1) Since she is clever at maintaining a front that she is a wonderful mother, with a smile on her face, she'll manage in a few short words to make her child look stupid and 2) Once in private, that child will pay dearly for having the audacity to speak up in the first place. The pain from some abuses can't be seen by the eye!!

3/4 no contact A Help for narcissistic sociopath relationship survivors. So far the texts are "ohhh I miss you so much" or "can't wait until you write me back. Wanna see how my daughter is doing." Blah blah blah. Manipulative!

There is a particular sort of betrayal that is more insidious and equally corrosive to trust. In fact, this betrayal usually happens long before the other ones. I’m talking about the betrayal of disengagement. Of not caring. Of letting the connection go. Of not being willing to devote time and effort to the relationship.
