“I think parents have a misconception about what their role is. A lot of parents feel that—I call it the narcissistic parent because they are outcome-dependent, so to speak. Where if the child performs well, that means they’re a good parent. If the child performs poorly, that means they’re a bad parent. But that’s basing your ideas of parental adequacy on the performance of your child and that is not fair to the child.” - Dr. Adena Blickstein
