Types of Effects on the Child: Grandstanding

The Grandstanding Parent

  • Compliant Response: The compliant child of a grandstanding narcissistic parent will tend to be submissive, self-effacing, and self-deprecating. She is always on edge, trying to anticipate the unexpected and fearing and expecting the worst, and she is unable to protect her boundaries. 
  • Rebellious Response: The rebellious child engages in risky behavior that can be self-destructive. She uses flattery as a tool and can appear cooperative but may have quiet or hidden defiance. She has considerable resistance to others' ideas, thoughts, and so on but is adept at concealing true feelings.
