Is it possible that a covert narcissist uses his teen daughter to triangulate?

Yes he can cause triangulation to happen either between the daughter and her siblings or between the daughter and his wife/her mum for his own gains.

This way he gets to manipulate and control relationships, giving him central focus, but very often leading to jealousy, exclusion and divisiveness in family relationships.

Unfortunately the same happens if he gives a particular daughter more attention than the wife, sadly this can cause unconscious jealousy between the daughter and the wife and they are unaware what is going on.

It is very sad because everyone's relationship suffers causing lifelong damage and no one realises that a game has been played.
