Caretaker vs BPD/NPD manipulator: many of our DHs fit this pattern

I stumbled on this book on Amazon right now and could not help sharing: it hits so many nails right on the heads.

The author is Margalis Fjelstad, PhD. She writes for Psychology Today.

I think the woman is a genius!

My DH's description can be found on page 29.

but the problem here is half the time its the KID that is the BPD/NPD and we all know that the dads refuse to walk away.

I have the same problem and my solution is ( the skids are adults): you need to walk away from the ROLE of the caretaker and their manipulations. A sick relationship does not serve anyone.
