15 Signs You Were Raised by a Narcissistic Parent

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is something we’re fascinated by. In fact, our first post on According to Chren was: Think You’re Dating a Narcissist? Here’s How to Tell.

We decided to shift focus for this blog post and talk about narcissistic parents. Most people don’t realize that their parent or parents are narcissists until they reach adulthood, which is sad, because it leads to them dealing with trauma and PTSD for many years after moving out.
