Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
my mother in law passed away last year and I didn't let her see my son for a very long time. She would do very strange things . She seemed to enjoy scaring him as well as leaving him alone at various places. I found out that she once left him in the supermarket alone when he was 5 yrs old. she went home to put he grocery's away and then came back for him. she would do a lot of bizarre things like that around children. She also would be desperate to babysit anyone's child. I was wondering if there was a mental illness connected with that type of behavior ? oh-one time she witnessed a bank robbery. She just walked away across the street to shop-didn't call police . she seemed to get pleasure out of seeing people in a situation that could turn out very bad
Thank you -I didn't realize that a narcissistic personality enjoys hurting others. i was just wondering about her obsession with children? she told me this story a few times-when she was a teenager she was babysitting -went shopping and went home without the baby. When she got home she realized she left the baby on the blvd in the carriage ! What is that???
