My children have suffered horrendously at the hands of their father who sees everyone as a function of his life not as a person in their own right. He once said to me, 'imagine if our children turned out to be smarter than us? Wouldn't that be awful?' I thank God every day that they did and stay away from him. Everybody in the narc's circle is just a source of 'supply' and the extent of a narc's interaction with their supplies is whatever it takes to keep that supply plentiful and ready to do the narc's bidding or serve the required function to maintain his outward status to the world. It's as cold as that.
