    You have just finished preparing a delicious home-cooked dinner complete with a dessert chilling in the fridge. If your dogs are anything like mine, they will sometimes listen when you say, “out of the kitchen!” but even if they do exit the area, it’s all over if a piece of food drops to the ground from the chopping board. To dogs, the sound of the dropped food is like a piñata busting open that is filled with crunchy doggie treats! Thought bubble: is that piece of vegetable that just dropped and gobbled up by your dog safe for him to eat? Here’s another scenario involving dogs and human food. It’s not unusual to have little bits of food and plate scraps left behind after dinner, or maybe there’s only a bite or two left sitting on the platter.

    Narcissistic parents-in-law are incredibly cruel, often going out of their way to make sure their son or daughter's spouse doesn't feel welcome, according to trauma therapist Shannon Thomas. If the child from the narcissistic family is oblivious to the harm being caused, it can slowly tear apart their marriage.

For example, narcissistic in-laws will play favorites, isolate the target from their own children, and lie about anything to fit their narrative and make the target feel excluded. Narcissists often act like they're reading from the same instruction manual, so there are some telltale signs that a toxic in-law is what you're dealing with.
