Editors Note For the first time, here's a common-sense guide from professionals, with more than two decades in the field, on how to smooth communications with a challenging parent. Filled with practical tips for handling contentious behaviors and sample dialogues for some of the most troubling situations, this book addresses many hard issues, including: * How to tell your parent he or she cannot live with you. * How to avoid the cycle of nagging and recriminations * How to prevent your parent's negativity from overwhelming you. * How to deal with an impaired parent who refuses to stop driving. * How to asses the risk factors in deciding whether a parent is still able to live alone.
Editors Note 1 It's always hard dealing with an aging parent, even under the best circumstances. But what if you've had a continually strained relationship with a parent that's becoming more difficult as your parent becomes more dependent on you. Though there's no medical definition for "difficult" parents, you know when you have one. While it's rare for adults to change their ways late in life, you can stop the vicious merry-go-round of anger, blame, guilt and frustration. This commonsense guide -- written by two professionals with more than two decades in the field -- contains practical tips for handling contentious behaviors and sample dialogues for some of the most troubling situations.
Editors Note 2 Offers particular advice for adults who are caring for previously estranged and/or increasingly difficult aging parents, presenting common-sense advice on ending the cycle of blame, guilt, and anger while volunteering sample dialogues of difficult situations. Original.
