Editorial Reviews


“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.
