Have you broken from your parents or are you considering it?
In my latest book (published in 2014), “Breaking from Your Parents: Setting a New Precedent for Your Life and Our Species,” I tackle this taboo subject head on.
Relying on my own personal experience and that of many others I have known, I offer background on this often painful subject and discuss actions we can take to maximize the healthiness of our breaking up process and minimize the risk.
“Breaking from Your Parents” explores such topics as confronting parents, dealing with siblings, becoming financially independent, doing self-therapy to strengthen ourselves, grieving our losses, dealing with the world’s judgments and negative pressures, healing our childhood traumas, making respectful friends and living a healthy lifestyle. The book is direct, straightforward and supportive—and takes the point of view that there can be great value for us all in our taking distance from our parents.
