What can a 6 or 7 year old boy do to make his narcissistic father lose all interest in him?
This is in my son’s best interest – his father is abusive, but since its emotional abuse, I am unable to prove it in court. I need to find a way to protect my son. This has nothing to do with my personal feelings about my ex. I am looking for tangible ways to deal with a narcissistic parent. Thanks.
Your question makes you look like a terrible parent. Your background explanation behind your question humanizes you a little more. Would your ex agree to allow the child to attend therapy? Is there a school counselor he could go see to help him open up and get some foundational evidence for a need for therapy? Would your ex be amenable to family therapy? That way the therapist could see how much of each parent’s own psychological pathology may be adversely affecting the child. You need some proof of emotional abuse before you could take the matter to court asking for relief. But as you can likely see, in a situation like this, involving a narcissistic parent, you need proof of narcissistic personality disorder and proof that his disorder is causing him to harm the child emotionally.
