Book, "Human Magnet" studies narcissists and their effect on offspring. It gave me huge insight into the makeup of my sister. Some children will work hard to be in the good graces of the N. which sets them up for being a perfectionist and a co dependent. This is the way my sister became the golden (in my eyes) princess. I remember her unusual striving for mom's positive attention. She'd declare "Mom's Breakfast in Bed Day," or we'd wax the floor as a surprise. Sis (oldest) would make cards, poems. I just followed ..she strove hard for mom's conditional love.
