New Harbinger Publications. This book describes Destructive Narcissistic Parents DNPs , describes how being raised by them affected you, and gives very unique techniques for diffusing their ability to hurt you. As an adult, you can have two possible responses to being raised by a DNP.
The empowering strategies which are suggested are very interesting. For instance, becoming contrary when a DNP is trying to manipulate us- without explaining or announcing what we are doing, simply doing the opposite of or something entirely different from whatever is wanted or ordered. Other examples include becoming indifferent, avoiding interactions, setting guidelines your parent must follow in order to obtain your cooperation, practicing a blank facial expression and no response when being criticized, acting bored and "drifting" to another subject, asking a series of questions that will point out the absurdity of what they are saying, and declaring independence.
It is important not to let them get a rise out of you or appear hurt, angry or defensive. This book is especially valuable for those with self-centered parents who exploit them, and have probably done so since childhood.
Many of us will recognize the narcissist in our own parents. Does your parent have attention needs, admiration needs, the need to be considered unique and special, lack of empathy, feel other are extensions of herself, grandiosity, shallow emotions, a sense of entitlement, emotionally abusive traits, or exploit others? These characteristics identify a DNP, and specific examples of each trait are given.
