Silent Treatment - Narcistic behaviour

Thanks Doc for your response and comments.

Am sorry you are suffering the pain. Do you think the weather may be contributing to the pain perhaps more than if we had more sunshine?

I wish you well soon and to be painfree.

Yes I have found so much information on the net and most refer to this type of behaviour being related to narcisism.

Guess it is difficult to quantify the damage as there are so many variables of other types of behaviour, situations thrown in the mix, but rather fascinating none the less.

For instance parents/teachers/authority figures punishing small children - sitting the corner -alone in a room. For short periods may perhaps bring about a change in behavioiur perhaps through fear of being ostracised, alone and out of the group situation.

Then another scenario would be being ignored not spoken to by family members for lengthy periods.... days, weeks months etc...
or even years.

Just wanted to thank you again.

Regards

Tracey

Odd how the "sitting in the corner of the room" ( in earlier classrooms, made also to wear the Dunce's Cap and looking like a miniature Ku Klux Klansman ) went out of fashion, but now TV child shows have popularized the "Naughty Chair" - what matters more is the method, the rationale and the explanation given. Its better when seen as a time-out, earned by breaking specific rules, and avoidble by keeping to them.
Lengthy periods of ostracism is a very different matter, with no real benefits except when one is ignoring someone who is a purely malignant trouble-maker.

Tracey your right, id go so far as to say that such behaviour towards children over a long period of time would cause them mental illness either an episode or prolonged illness.

Borders on the satanic, amazing what God in heaven puts up with down here with the way people treat each other.

There seems to be no limit to two things from my experience, Gods love and mankinds cruelty, i mean even an animal doesnt behave as some people do.

Another comment Doc.

Most abuse is action related, swearing, drinking, verbal, physical, emotional.... it is by doing something repetitvely or over time....

this form of abuse is non action related in that it is silent, avoiding... saying nothing, no words are used, no physical contact....yet by the silence and avoidance it is emotionally abusive and mentally abusive towards the victim.
