Hi thank you for your advice. I left the ex a few years back and have 2 teenage sons. In 2015 he was violent towards me in front of the boys. As the boys are teenagers and they love their dad I have agreed to 50/50 share care, however I struggle with communication with the father. I do not engage in verbal communication, especially as my words are twisted and he gets easily abusive. When the boys are with their father, they barely communicate with me and when they come to my house, they are angry. They inform me of what is being said and scorn me for not talking to their dad or say “bad things” about him. However, they tell me how he lies and twists words. I am very confused and feel very sad for my children and at the same time don’t know what to do. Are there any other mothers out there that co parent with a covert narcissist? Does anyone know of any books that are helpful with this? Any help will be great!
