Ideally, they will see that you are struggling without them, still pining for them, and still confused and upset. That strokes the narc ego, and that is what is most important to them, the ego. You were once their possession, fully under their control, and even if they dumped you, they want to know they could still have you if they wanted. If you walked away from them, it is trickier for them, because that was a blow to the ego, and they need to be able to tell themselves that, notwithstanding, you still pine. So they keep tabs on you- if not directly, through their flying monkeys. Mine still tries, even though we split up decades ago- but I am hyper-vigilant, have maximum privacy settings on all social media, never befriend anyone I don�t know (they use false names a lot), and have blocked him everywhere. I don�t want him to know anything about my life, even though it is happy and settled.

I always recommend Prepare to be Tortured (the price you will pay for dating a narcissist). AB Jamieson, on Amazon. It is a good general guide and will tell you all you need to know, without psychobabble, and it covers narcs as friends and colleagues and relatives, which is useful – there are a lot about it. It is also good on the red flags, so you can spot narcs in the future and stay well away.

With so much to fret over, including many fret-worthy issues related to technology, it’s almost confusing to see a question where a parent is concerned about a child’s love for reading. I’m not necessarily going to address your fear that her critical thinking will be affected. I don’t know if you’ve read much fiction yourself, but there tends to be a conflict, and often a resolution. There are plenty of life lessons throughout a novel, even without a happy ending.

I’m not putting down non-fiction, but…I’m just going to jump into my list of points I’d like to make. Be happy she is reading. Never deny her time to read, nor reading material.

However, when my parents wanted to enforce punishment, they had to take my books away; they never succeeded, because I had them hidden all over the In October We Wear Pink Pig Breast Cancer Awareness shirt and by the same token and house. Fiction taught me how to be a person. That sentence might sound glib, but I believe it.

Fiction gave me the tools to problem-solve, to dream, and to have a genuinely more deliberate internal monologue. It affected not only my dealings with others, but with myself. I didn’t curse – at all – until after college, because I prided myself on using my words to describe my feelings. In fifth grade, a friend spread a rumor about me, and I wrote her a letter to tell her how I felt. There is a dark underbelly to being a voracious reader. I didn’t have many friends, because reading ‘The Good Earth’ in first grade doesn’t endear you to your classmates. My words-per-minute and accompanying comprehension was tested in both third and fifth grade, with my fifth-grade teacher calling me inhuman.
