    I thought this was VERY interesting. Not too long either. To me, this was my life, although, of course, all situations are different. Everyone knew who the Golden Child and Scapegoat were in our family, although the terms were not used. But even the three offspring talked about it. There was no attempt to keep it a secret at all.

    This is why a narcissistic mother has children play these roles.
