Liz and Françoise Redux: the deluded and the exploiter......

It seems obvious that the only way Liz can handle the stress of every day life is to not think too hard about things. This is, as I mentioned yesterday, because she learned it from watching her parents. If she thinks about things, her default negativity runs away with her making it impossible for her to see the good side of anything. This bizarre and counterproductive habit of mind which leaves her with the alternatives of "smirking obliviousness" and "curled up in the fetal position" combined with her hatred of conflict bodes ill for her future as a mother. It's fairly obvious that Françoise will exploit this tendency to her advantage. Liz would rather, for instance, cave than 'disappoint' Anthony. Francie would naturally be able to use that to her advantage by dropping broad hints that her dad might find certain things unacceptable. Also, it's not that big a stretch that the child would feign affection in order to make her life easier. Liz is so hungry for positive signs that she'd seize on anything that looks like kindness in order to justify herself to herself. Much like Annie Nichols, she'll be a smug fool living in denial.
