Grandparents with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) can have a significant negative impact on their grandchildren. People with NPD can be manipulative, controlling, and abusive.
Grandparents with NPD may view their grandchildren as extensions of themselves and expect them to meet their unrealistic expectations. They may also be jealous of their grandchildren’s successes and try to sabotage them. Grandparents with NPD can also be emotionally abusive, criticizing their grandchildren, putting them down, and making them feel worthless.
The following are some of the dangers of narcissistic grandparents:
- Emotional abuse. Grandparents with NPD may emotionally abuse their grandchildren by criticizing them, putting them down, and making them feel worthless. This can lead to low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety in grandchildren.
- Manipulation and control. Grandparents with NPD may manipulate and control their grandchildren to get what they want. They may use guilt-tripping, threats, or even violence to get their way. This can lead to grandchildren feeling helpless and powerless.
- Sabotage. Grandparents with NPD may be jealous of their grandchildren’s successes and try to sabotage them. They may criticize their grandchildren’s accomplishments, spread rumors about them, or even try to prevent them from achieving their goals. This can damage grandchildren’s self-confidence and sense of self-worth.
- Alienation. Grandparents with NPD may alienate grandchildren from their parents or other loved ones. They may spread rumors about the parents or other loved ones, or they may try to turn the grandchildren against them. This can damage grandchildren’s relationships with their families and make them feel isolated and alone.
If you are concerned that your grandchildren may be being harmed by a narcissistic grandparent, it is important to take steps to protect them. This may involve limiting their contact with the grandparent or talking to a therapist about dealing with the situation.
It is also important to remember that you are not alone. Many resources are available to help you and your grandchildren cope with the challenges of having a narcissistic grandparent in their lives.
