Narcissistic Parents Want You to Remain Their Psychological Slaves.
A very subtle way to create damage in children is to turn the chosen scapegoat child into a parent.
This process is called parentification, not to be confused with parenting. In parentification the parent gives up what they are supposed to do as a parent and transfers that responsibility to the scapegoat child. Hence the scapegoat child becomes parentified.
