In brief: Very gently
People who truly have narcissistic personality disorder are exquisitely sensitive to criticism or perceived slights.
These can result in verbal attack or sometimes a complete cutting off -- both painful for you. Depending on my relationship with this family member, i would tread carefully, protect my own boundaries, and do extreme self-care after being with them. Might even get help myself.
