Yes! Parents that allow their children to take on no responsibility or pay for their consequences create a monster. It is up to every parent to instill right and wrong and to give their children self-worth and it shouldn't always be done by telling the child what they have done wrong, but teach how to rectify it and also laughter along with it can help. Parents of a narcissist often spoil the child and studies show that many narcissists were an only child. In these modern times many parents both work and feel guilty so provide "things" such as credit cards, gifts, trips rather than giving their child the much needed guidance they deserve. And thus, a narcissist can be born!
