Your family is falling apart and everyone is grudgingly unhappy, the kids are misbehaving and in trouble with the law, your dreams are disintegrating as midlife pokes through, you want your children to thrive and do well. …
Trying to solve family problems? This wise, practical book will guide you. You will find yourself and your family on many of its pages and quickly discover that those precious relationships can be saved and preserved.
Expertly written by psychiatrist Dr Charles Fishman, the book's principles of change and transformation reach across the many stages of a family life, from "new baby in the house" and "off to school" to "an adolescent has emerged" and "elderly parents come to live".
Dr. Charles Fishman develops a refreshing conversation with the reader; you'll feel sure he is talking directly with you and your family. He has 35 years of experience interviewing and treating thousands of families, both in the United States and abroad, and as a psychiatrist, specialising in children, adolescents and adults, he has dedicated his work to the enduring future of the power of the modern family.
