Book Description

How can we improve and enrich our family relationships? Even people who are outwardly confident, successful in their professional lives and have rewarding friendships can be undone by uncomfortable, cold or combative relationships with their siblings, parents, children and grandkids.

But at midlife, many people are finally ready to take on the slings and arrows and set things right, whether with a resentful child, a critical parent or a competitive sister.

One motivated person can initiate lasting change. However, someone has to take the first step onto the high road. When we do this, it's important to remember that it's often not what we communicate that counts, but how we say it and what we intentionally don’t say.

This eBook from PBS and Next Avenue offers up concrete, actionable advice for healing and enjoying our most critical family relationships. By enriching these, we boost the amount and quality of love in our lives as well as our peace of mind, and we ensure that loneliness can be the least of our worries in older age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read. January 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I purchased all three of Next Avenue's ebooks after seeing a posting on PBS's Facebook page about them. I was pleasantly surprised. If you're looking for a boring 300pg white paper about these topics, don't buy these books. If what you want is current, relevant and well sourced info that can make you life better beginning today, then you've found what you're looking for.

This title is especially great. I find I'm already approaching relationships with my children and spouse differently, and the effects are positive!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a fan January 26, 2014

Entrenched family dynamics are hard to change, but I actually have hope after reading this. This should be required reading for any family that's trying to be less dysfunctional.
