520 Using extensive interviews with people ages 25 to 70,
editor Isay shows that we're far from alone in our
struggles to make this adult relationship work. Isay
charts a course through the confusing and often painful
interactions parents and children can face, offering up
groundbreaking insights and moving stories that will
inspire those in even the toughest situations. You'll
learn why silence really is golden, and how sometimes the
smallest gesture of love and acceptance is all that's
needed to keep the lines of communication open. From
marriage and remarriage to stepparents and grandparents,
virtually every type of family issue is addressed in
anecdotes that are both compelling and reassuring.
Preserving intimacy within a family isn't easy, but
learning to maintain close ties with your children can be
a truly rewarding and life-changing experience.--From
