Summary
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 publisher description
