Development of narcissism tends to start early in life and is often mistaken for confidence. In addition, today’s society often incubates narcissism and narcissists as a virtue, rather than pathology. But that doesn’t mean that the pain a narcissist will go through will be any less once they break. And there is also the pain of their partners in the relationships they form—even though they are not capable of sustaining a true intimate and healthy relationship. So, what causes someone to be a narcissist?
Constant changes in society and fast advances in technology are continuously changing the way people live and interact with one another. And that’s also having its impact on parenting. The way my generation lived as we were kids—the kind of parenting we were subject to—is quite different from what kind of society and environment we live in today and how this affects parenting. Hence the importance of mindful parenting.
