    HG, I’ve been meaning to ask: I read on a discussion board a strikingly similar situation to mine, where a lady’s sister got from her parents over 100.000 EUR for her house, while the other two sisters got nothing and never will. The lady complained that she had worked hard all her life while that sister hadn’t finished her education and didn’t work. Her parents acted even particularly strange.
    However: someone on the board said that it would often be the case that a child who did not manage his or her own life would get the most support by the parents, to make them look good.

    Do you think that narc parents would do that – give away a huge amount of money in an unfair way, just for the facade? Only to make the family look good? Would they need/want to finance a house only for the appearance? And overlook that having the rest of the children not speaking to them anymore or retreating, isn’t looking too good either??

    My mother would think this of her golden child son but the truth is he married into a wealthy family. He has adhd and she let him flunk out of school and has no highschool diploma even. He knows how to schmooze people and thats about the extent of it.

    This is one that’s difficult to argue without looking bad and seeming selfish and ungrateful. Parents are proud of their children’s success and toffee that success is somewhat attributable to how they raised their children.

    The problem with this one is in the “all”. When a narc parent says it, they really think it’s all them and dismiss the perhaps years of work and effort their child has dedicated to their success. That child is then trapped by society into staying quiet and listening to their parent taking credit, because to get angry or dispute it upsets the people listening and just makes you look bad to them. This one can be very frustrating.

      Ha, ha! “Toffee” was supposed to be “really believe.” Autocorrect can be really creative!
