Lastly, is my 20 year old son aware that his Dad is trying to control him? He feels it, but does he know it intuitively? He has been in therapy for four years.
I wish you great success and best wishes, and shall continue to hold you all in my prayers.
He will make the connection immediately if I give him this book, and I regret it may likely annoy him. So I better not do it.
I am sure he knows it on a subconscious level. MAYBE ONE DAY I can have a conversation if he brings it up when he matures. He may not be ready to consciously admit it. In fact, once I told him Dad was narcissistic and he seemed later annoyed by it. I will wait until he approaches me. I bet his psychiatrist knows it, but I have no idea how he cousels my son. if I am the one to talk about Dad, once again, I run the risk of making myself look bad. I have a history of being enmeshed with him due to Dads behavior which was broken four years ago after he started therapy. Isnt this the relationship category?
