Psychopath Parent: Do You Have One?

Psychopath parent.

Have you ever heard of this statement so bluntly?

Who wants to believe that they have a psychopathic parent?

Who wants to accept that they may never have a “normal” parent to run to when needed?

I honor and respect GOOD parents.

NO ONE wants to be faced with the reality that their mother or father is incapable of normal human emotion. It’s a shock to the heart and mind to find out that your parent may be a psychopath.

Most research suggests that psychopaths are born and that many life experiences have a way of “strengthening” the psychopath so that they can become the un-emotional and callous individuals they are.

In this video, I discuss the characteristics of psychopaths and narrow the focus to parents.

*All of the behaviors discussed in this video occur together — like a syndrome — and rarely occur alone. For example, some parents may do the things discussed in this video but that does not NECESSARILY mean they are psychopaths.
