What happens if your child falls prey to a sociopath?
Like a cult leader?
Or just somebody that exerts control because of his / her own needs.
Because the vulnerable are used.
Actually very little unless you can convince your child that he / she is dealing with a sociopath. And I would not bet on your chances either. And usually the sociopath will ensure that he / she isolates you from your child – sad hey?
Sociopaths can be very charismatic and friendly — because they know it will help them get what they want. “They are expert con artists and always have a secret agenda,” “People are so amazed when they find that someone is a sociopath because they’re so amazingly effective at blending in. They’re masters of disguise. Their main tool to keep them from being discovered is a creation of an outer personality.”
Sociopathy is a personality disorder that manifests itself in such traits as dishonesty, charm, manipulation, narcissism, and a lack of both remorse and impulse control
“I am naturally manipulative. I have a tendency to indulge in self-deception.”
