This "other Dr. Ruth" will gently guide you through the intricacies of parenting your adult children. With the wisdom of a scholar and the humility that only the mother of four grownups can bring to the subject, she deftly addresses issues of communication, in-laws, stylistic and cultural differences, grandparenting, disappointment, adult sibling relationships, money, and more, while encouraging us to acknowledge and utilize our children's expertise.
Dr. Nemzoff will share vivid vignettes and make sound suggestions to help us create satisfying mutual relationships. Dr. Ruth Nemzoff's books are useful as an adjunct to therapy or a part of retirement planning.
