Co-parenting with a Narcissist Ex

Co-Parenting with a Narcissist Ex

Co-parenting with a Narcissist ex is incredibly challenging and you may be worried that a court will be influenced by your Narcissist ex’s ability to manipulate, charm and hide their true colours and motivations.  But with the correct legal advice, you can reveal your co-parenting with a Narcissist ex’s controlling actions in court – without damaging your case or credibility.  At Nasser Allan LLP, we understand the difficulties you face co-parenting with a narcissistic ex.  We can provide you with advice on how to uncover and expose your Narcissistic ex’s manipulative gas-lighting tactics.

How to Uncover your Narcissist Ex’s Behaviour 

Every Narcissist ex has created a highly crafted “mask” developed to hide their deep feeling of inadequacy and failure.  These masks impact their ability to empathize, which in turn impacts their ability to love others – including their children.  Do you fall into the co-parenting with a Narcissist ex category? Check out this article to learn about the top 12 traits and symptoms of Narcissist Personality Disorders.  Common behaviours include:

  • An exaggerated sense of self-importance that represents itself as extreme ego
  • Seeking recognition of greatness, despite a lack of accomplishments
  • Making false claims about abilities and past successes
  • Regularly dreaming or fantasizing about gaining power, intelligence, good looks, or an ideal lover
  • Putting down others who are not perceived as equally impressive
  • Insisting on constant praise or admiration from others
  • A strong sense of entitlement
  • Expectation others will comply with requests or instructions
  • A tendency to take advantage of the generosity of others
  • A distinct lack of empathy
  • Extreme jealousy of others, especially if they are highly accomplished
  • Arrogance

We help our clients co-parent with a Narcissist ex and outsmart their Narcissist exes at their own game – by highlighting the Narcissist ex’s need to affirm their grandiose sense and exposing their abusive, explosive and “gas lighting” behaviours.  Waiting for an apology or recognition from your Narcissist ex? You’re going to be waiting a long-time cause for your Narcissist ex, admitting to any wrong doing will cause their fragile egos to crumble.  To co-parent with a Narcissist ex, the problem is always yours and you have severely wounded and insulted your Narcissist ex by suggesting in any way that they are anything less than amazing. For this, a Narcissist ex will stop at nothing to punish you.

Do Not React – Stick to the Facts – Stay Calm 

If you react to coparenting with a Narcissist ex’s manipulative behaviours, they will make sure you look like the crazy, strung out parent.  Our advice is to stay cool, keep track of the facts and stick to them.  Keep your communications with your Narcissist ex in writing and keep your messages short and to the point.  Avoid name calling or self-diagnosing in your communications – let your Narcissist ex’s actions speak for itself.  Narcissist exes are highly charming manipulators and trying to play any game co-parenting with a Narcissist ex will surely end in defeat.  Instead keep a calm, practical demeanour and let your lawyer handle the details.  At Nasser Allan LLP, we work with you to develop a legal strategy based on your Narcissist ex’s unique fact based manipulation tactics.
