Review of Janet Bloom’s Book Co-Parenting Hell: Raising Healthy Kids With a Narcissistic Ex

This is a book written by a child’s mother and is now divorced from her husband. This book begins with the definition of narcissistic personality disorder of the US Psychiatric Association from the diagnosis and statistical manual version 5 (DSM-V). The author explains this A based on her experience, but mentions the American Psychiatric Association and her specialized books that she quotes. This book is presented as a combination of a memoir and handbook for other parents in her situation. She talks about achieving peace and emotional freedom. However, some paragraphs later, and she refers to the umo “my original (dawn)”.

The author explains the narcissist and its characteristics. Most of them are associated with her experience and her ex -husband’s behavior. It was unknown to me that her narcissistic features were to be a professional writing or her ex -husband’s own experience.

The author describes her professional writing and her own experience in her own experience. She talks about her experience and her observation in a colloquial way.

She is discussing the influence of the early family to set up the stage of the development of personality disorders in narcissism. She reveals that this state is not a choice for people to make for themselves. This tends to run with the family and may be at least partially genetic.

This book explains the difficulty of being separated from a narcissistic spouse who has not negotiated honestly. The author explains how those people try to manipulate the authorities, courts, and their former spouse’s family for their benefits. Trying to negotiate with such a person is often a losing proposal.

Balance with your spouse may be suffering from difficulties, and you may need to help a lawyer and court to manage arrangements. The author will give a detailed list of possibility symbiotic issues in detail and propose a specific approach to manage each.


It has also been discussed to show the validity of the treatment of children involved in a divorce and after -Divorus struggle. Therapy is regarded as “important for the success of parents’ parents” in other support, but does not explain in detail how treatment is useful for parents.

The author is dealing with various issues that are likely to occur when managing coexistence with narcissists. She also provides specific recommendations for managing these issues. She is working on the complex difficulties involving the parent Relative and how they can operate with a narcissistic former spouse.

She ends up by emphasizing the need for self -care. She also emphasizes that she takes time to recover from a trauma, especially when she is involved in a child, from a trauma to marry a narcissistic spouse. All of these issues can suggest the help of therapists, but the author does not specifically work on how the therapist can support this process. However, she is discussing a wide range of actions that can be pursued by individuals to recover from this very difficult series.

The author suggests that the best way to manage these difficulties is that they are not involved in the relationship with narcissists. I sincerely agree with this conclusion. However, the narcissist is very fascinating and can present a fake front for a while. If you notice that you are in this situation, this book can provide useful roadmaps through the jungle of narcissism.
