My father’s was a moderate narcissist displaying some, but not all, of the characteristics. My ex-son-in-law is a complete narcissist who claims to love his kids, and was the “fun" parent, back before he abandoned them. He doesn’t see them now because he won’t be controlled by the government meaning he doesn’t accept the jurisdiction of the court and refuses to abide by the designated visitation schedule and the monthly child support he is to pay. Narcissists are a virus that invades your body and never leaves.
