Narcs make deplorably bad parents.They are too focused on themselves to find children anything but an annoyance or a way to increase admiration and power. They view and treat their children only as extensions or reflections of themselves seeing them the way an advertiser sees a sign by the side of the road - as something to put their name on and use to build themselves up. Narcs deny their children's existence by insisting their children be and do what THEY want.
So often children are punished for being human. Children are not allowed to have grumpy moods, bad days, disrespectful tones, or bad attitudes, yet we adults have them all the time. None of us are perfect and we must stop holding our children to a higher standard than we can attain ourselves.
