If we are a parent,  we can anticipate our youngsters turning  against us at some point, even in normal, healthy relationships  but quadruple  the potential  problems if toxic people are involved. I take comfort in the fact that they feel safe turning against us, as it is not safe turning against a narcissistic parent. They will be punished  out of all proportion. I have seen my son be desperate because his father was giving him the  cold shoulder.

I believe it is normal and even healthy them to think “F##k both of you!’ for a while! and  reject everything we have attempted  to teach them.


I allowed myself to get to caught up in trying to protect them even when they were more than old enough to protect themselves.

These Boots Are Made For Walking

As the”in” parent, the boot will soon be on the other foot however. We can let the toxic parent try to do the hard stuff for a change and attempt, if the children are adults, to have a well-earned  break.

The toxic parent will quite likely get bored, being as their whole goal is to try and  destroy you anyway.
