If we are not careful, our parenting habits can lead to the unexpected outcome of raising a narcissistic child.
You can accidentally raise a narcissistic kid. Does this concept sound strange? I’ll elaborate in today’s post.
I recently saw two young mothers in a coffee shop conversing over their brew while their two infants played together on the floor. Neither child could walk yet. They were given full reign of the coffee shop floor until they ended up blocking the shop entrance.
I doubt these moms were intentionally neglectful. Rather devotees of a new and hip way of letting their kids explore the world. Albeit, conditioning them to be future entitled narcissists.
Inconveniencing customers wasn’t on the radar for these tots, or their mothers. Proverbs 29:15 says, “…a child left to himself disgraces his mother.”
Let’s not disgrace our kids, ourselves or our God by creating narcissistic kids.
Conversation Starter: Evaluate the things you permit your child to do? Are there any habits developing that may lead to narcissism?
