    An ePregnancy Favorite!!

    As the editor of ePregnancy, a monthly magazine for expectant parents, I get literally thousands of questions a year on relationships and parents. From how to deal with the in-laws during baby's first week to re-establishing contact with a parent long out of touch, parents suddenly find themselves in unfamiliar waters. Newman's book is simply the best - she explains why relationships change as we age, and waht to do when you want to change the course of a relationship. I recommend this to all expectant parents - and their families!! Sheri Wallace, Editor-in-Chief, ePregnancy Magazine

    Practical, not preachy

    I found 'Nobody's Baby Now' to be an invaluable guide precisely because it offers advice, real life experiences, and support for all kinds of people in many different stages of their relationships with their parents and other family members. It focuses on how you can take the steps to turn your time with your mom or dad into positive, peer-based relationships rather than getting stuck in a rut based on how you treated each other when you were a child. And it devotes most of its attention to the problems facing 'typical' families as opposed to the kinds of self-help books you usually see for children of alcoholics or those who have been abused, which can be hard to relate to. The book was also very easy to read because of its conversational and open tone -- it never gets preachy or relies on empty terminology -- I found its emphasis on how to draw loving connections among your family not only for your own well-being, but for that of your children as well, to be practical and supportive.

    Ways to love and enjoy your parents

    If you have parents, regardless of your relationship with them, this book is an important read and a must for your library! Dr. Newman not only poses the complexities and challenges in the adult child/parent relationship, but presents solutions and recommendations for improving this most significant connection. She guides the reader through recognizing difficult situations, and then empowers the reader to maximize his own adult relationship with his parents. The chapters which touched me most were dealing with boundaries, financial matters and sibling complications. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to find more opportunities to love and enjoy their parents.

    Mom it's me, your adult daughter

    I have not been a baby for a while, but my mom didn't seem to notice. This book really helped me understand that, and develop a plan to redesign our relationship. A Must Read!
