Product Details

Praise

“Jane Isay gives us a hope chest of hard-earned wisdom and aha moments, and a mirror in which we can safely examine ourselves and our families.” —Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls


“From her own loving heart and from richly revealing interviews with parents and adult children, Jane Isay has fashioned a wonderfully wise and constructive intergenerational guide.  Read it and learn!”
—Judith Viorst, author of I’m Too Young to Be Seventy and Other Delusions


“A gently told, achingly honest book about the search for love and acceptance that aging parents and their adult children bring to each other and the tragic misunderstandings that get in their way and break their hearts.”
—Judith S. Wallerstein, Ph.D., author of What About the Kids? Raising Children Before, During, and After Divorce


“Jane Isay’s warm, intelligent, reassuring voice shines through her illuminating stories about the delicate, lifelong bond between parents and their grown children.  Anyone who has ever been in a parent-child kafuffle about rules, traditions, money, control, or anything else will find wisdom and encouragement in this lovely book. ”
—Carol Tavris, Ph.D., coauthor of Mistakes Were Made (but not by me)


“The brilliance of Walking on Eggshells lies in Isay’s uncanny ability to keep our love and good intentions in focus so that we all— parents and adult children—can untangle the unhealthy knots in our relationships before they cause harm.”
—Ira Byock, M.D., author of Dying Well


“With Isay’s sage advice, we can make life with our adult children calmer, closer and more enjoyable. This is a great read for every parent who has ever, in discussing their adult children, used the phrase ‘walking on eggshells.’ ”
—Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia
