How to Co-Parent with a Narcissist

Sep 30, 2018 — by Debra Sutton

Co-parenting with a narcissist is most often a high-conflict atmosphere.  The dissolution of marriage or separation of the couple has been accomplished.  Co-parenting is now the narcissists place of connection and control with their former partner.  Using children in this fashion is not appropriate and can have substantial and long-lasting adverse impact if not strategically dealt with as a matter of initial priority.  If the conflict is not managed, third parties, such as educators, medical and child care professionals may decline involvement with the family. Having a strong, experienced professional team is imperative. Educating yourself on these dynamics is advisable. Consider some of the techniques discussed here.
