This is a support group for people raised by a parent with toxic, self-absorbed or abusive personality traits, which may be exhibited by those who suffer from cluster B personality disorders.

>Because narcissists rarely seek care, few of our parents have a formal diagnosis. So in this space, "narcissist" is a term used loosely to refer to a variety of conditions, and is not used in a clinical sense. We are not professionals and cannot diagnose anybody. Please share your stories, your histories, your fears, and your triumphs.

What is a narcissist?

>Trait lists are here and tactics that narcissists use can be found here. While they are titled traits specific to mothers, fathers can have these same traits.

If you suspect you may be a narcissist,

>Read Help! I Think I am a Narcissist!

If you know you are a narcissist, if you identify as a narcissist, sociopath or psychopath or have a diagnosis of NPD or ASPD,

>No posts about politicians or political parties. Discussions about the possible narcissistic traits of a politician can be posted in /r/narcsinthewild

>No posts about celebrities or people in the media that you do not know personally. Discussions about the possible narcissistic traits of celebrities, that nasty lady you read about in an article, or that you saw in Starbucks that one time can be posted to /r/narcsinthewild. /r/raisedbynarcissists is for posts about abusers that you know personally and that are abusing you personally.

>Be nice. >No personal attacks, name calling, or bullying. Exercise empathy. Respect boundaries. No slurs or victim-blaming. Don't downvote. Speak with your upvotes.

>Do not derail the posts of others.

>Advising anyone in this group to commit suicide or referring them to groups that give this sort of advice will result in an immediate ban. I can't believe I have to write this rule, but, apparently, I do.

>Narcissists are NOT allowed to post or comment here.

>Please refrain from posting "uplifting" or "ACoNs are an inspiration to me" threads.

>When you comment, assume a context of abuse to all posts.

>Comments and posts that are hurtful or made without a basic understanding of the rules or subject matter discussed here will be removed.

>Exercise respect for each other and follow Reddiquette. Please note that the mods may remove posts and comments at their discretion to preserve a respectful, supportive atmosphere in this sub. Your tone matters when responding to others -- be kind!

>In general, be most excellent to each other, don't advocate things that will land the OP in deep water and be aware of your tone. Posts flared as "Support" are monitored much more closely for tone to ensure OP gets the support they need.

>No generalizing about groups of people. This includes race, religion, profession, gender, political party, age, ethnicity, etc.

>No advocating abusive practices. This includes current controversial ideas in discipline, medicine, or science that are abusive or misinformative. We stick to the verifiable truth as best we can on RBN, and to advocating healthy practices.

>No advocacy of putting soap/pepper in a child’s mouth for swearing (for example), corporal punishment (ie: no pro-spanking posts or comments - Why? Check this out.), or anti-vaccination or other pseudoscience.

>No encouragement of illegal drug use or self-medication without medical supervision, and no advising against proper medical treatment.

>Flaming will not be tolerated.

>No links or recommendations to hate groups.

>No posts or comments advocating violence, murder or revenge (even in jest).

>No posts about N-kids.

>No diagnosis by media/drive-by diagnosis. Please only post about people you know well personally. Otherwise you can post your stories here.

>No clickbait titles. Examples here.

>Please flair triggering content such as graphic physical abuse, sexual abuse or animal abuse. The flair button will appear under your post after the post has been submitted.

>No linking to personal or public Facebook pages

>No direct linking to anywhere on reddit (with exceptions).

>No pure image posts - Memes, etc., must be contained within a self-post. (Example.).

>Moderation in this group is always biased FOR the OP (the person who made the post - not the commenters). For example, if an OP does not appreciate comments of a religious nature, the moderators will defend the OP's boundaries. If an OP prefers comments of a religious nature, the moderators will also defend that boundary, for example. This is a support group - we are all here to support the OP. We often see commenters confused and feel that any comment should be allowed, because this is a support group. But, we are biased FOR the OP's needs and boundaries. When you write your own post asking for support, we will also be biased for you.

>Please keep in mind that the mods here are unpaid volunteers with their own busy lives and jobs and struggles. We are not online 24/7. We cannot read every post or comment. We are not omnipotent. We aren't aware of every problem, so please use the report button to flag the mods for problematic posts/comments you see in this group.

>While you're at it, check out Reddiquette. Not all the guidelines are appropriate for this group, but most are. It's a good baseline for behavior on in general!

>Disagree with a Mod decision? Modmail us! Modmail reaches the entire Mod team, we will review and respond as soon as we reasonably can. Rules lawyering will not help your cause.
