Editorial Reviews

Review

“In her author’s note, Newman (The Book of No, Parenting an Only Child) compares the mystery of functioning families to the splitting of the atom and the prevention of global warming. Living in harmony with one's returning child and/or family or one’s parents is about as complicated. To help with the resurgence of this phenomenon, Newman offers practical considerations, from protecting privacy and sticking to food preferences to dealing with money and respecting others’ time. Verdict: Newman covers all the bases, and her book is essential reading for those facing this situation. Following her advice can make the difference between enjoying the richness of another generation or simply tolerating it.”

Library Journal (starred Web review)

“A ‘how-to’ guide for every imaginable glitch that can and will arise. [Newman] makes it seem fun, adventurous, and a compassionate journey full of surprises, joys.”
William Poy Lee, author of The Eighth Promise: An American Son Pays Tribute to his Taiwanese Mother

“Susan Newman provides a master class in establishing boundaries, setting realistic expectations, handling the reversion into childhood roles, and guilt.”
Sharon Naylor, author of Home from the Honeymoon

“This innovative book will normalize, infuse dignity, inspire hope.”
―Jeffrey Bernstein, PhD, author of Liking the Child You Love

“Wonderfully insightful and comprehensive.”
―Susan Ginsberg, EdD, editor/publisher of Work & Family Life Newsletter

“[A] down-to-earth, straightforward book . . . [that] deals with the sensitive issues.”

―Allan Zullo, coauthor of A Boomer’s Guide to Grandparenting

“Dr. Newman’s message is reassuring and reverses the conventional wisdom that coming home is a burden.”
―Irene S. Levine, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry, New York University School of Medicine, author of Best Friends Forever

From the Back Cover

The must-have guide for living together peacefully with your adult family members
 
From money matters to boundaries, Under One Roof Again squarely addresses the inevitable and complicated issues that arise when formerly parent-child relationships become adult-adult ones. Social psychologist Susan Newman provides solid advice for avoiding the snags and building stronger family ties when family members rejoin each other for long or short time periods.

Format: Paperback
Great, helpful read on a timely subject! Based on extensive interviews, Newman gives sound, sensible, easily doable tips that cover every conceivable problem facing adult family members sharing the same space and everyone from grads to grandparents. Better yet, when it comes to the toughest situations, she gives options: Grown kid returning home, say, and not comfortable telling that parent with a tendency to micromanage "I'll ask for your advice if I need it"? Try "I'll feel so much better about myself if I take charge"--or any of the other alternates she suggests. Hard to see how you could implement even a fraction of her advice without making the experience of second-time-around living together easier, more enjoyable, and, just possibly, great family fun.

This book has a lot of really great advice. My wife and I are considering moving her recently divorced (non elderly) mother into our home, and it seemed impossible to find any reading material on this topic. This book covered our situation as well as young adults moving back home or established families moving in with parents. A must read for anyone considering a multigenerational household.

We have chosen to live with our adult children on the same property (but different houses) and wanted an overview of possible problems to address. This book has been helpful and also provided interesting anecdotes of families who went through the same process. I would recommend it.
