Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Avoiding psycho-palaver, Lieber, a family counselor, and Murphy, director of Counseling for the Long Island Advisory Centers, offer advice on ways to maintain constructive relationships between generations while avoiding ``dependence or domination'' on either side. Assisted by freelance writer Schwartz, the authors provide helpful suggestions for handling delicate topics such as unconventional lifestyles, illegitimate children and crime. They deal perceptively with the ``dividend'' and responsibility of grandparenting and with major changes like widowhood in parents' lives and their effects on parent-child relationships. Chapters include lists of practical tips as well as exercises. (Nov.)
Kathryn Carpenter
Parents whose children are grown face the challenge of replacing the protective, nurturing caregiver roles necessary when their offspring were young with adult relationships with them that are characterized by acceptance and respect. This empathetic, practical guide regards the tasks of separation and communication as the basis for redefining the meaning of parenting. The lessons Lieber and her collaborators offer help parents to avoid pitfalls such as using money as a bribe, threat, or crutch; neglecting to set guidelines and rules for adult children who move back home; focusing on the format rather than the feelings of holidays; feeling abandoned by a child who marries; and always knowing what's "best" in parenting a grandchild. The authors also guide parents through the family crises brought on by divorce, widowhood, remarriage, and lifestyles in conflict with original family values. Upbeat and affirmative, the insightful handbook does not minimize the hard work of changing old viewpoints or behaviors, and it employs case studies, reflective questions, and exercises to reinforce its instruction.
