At first, Ken Abraham wrote off his mother's changes in behavior as quirks that just come with old age. There was memory loss, physical decline, hygiene issues, paranoia, and uncharacteristic attitudes. He soon realized that dementia had changed her life—and his familiy's—forever. "How is it possible to lose a loved one while he or she is still living, still sitting right in front of you, talking with you, smiling at you—and yet the person you have known and loved for years is somehow gone?" According to the Alzheimer's Association, an estimated 5.4 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's disease. That's one in eight older Americans. More than likely, that figure includes someone you know and love. As he chronicles his own mother's degenerative condition, New York Times best-selling writer Ken Abraham educates while offering inspiration to help readers cope with and manage their family circumstances. With humor and spiritual reminders of God's command to honor our parents, Abraham encourages readers through often-difficult responsibilities. And though in most cases patients will not recover this side of heaven, he suggests many practical things that families can do to make the experience safer, kinder, and more endurable for everyone involved. When Your parent Becomes Your Child tells the story of one family's journey through dementia while offering hope to family members and friends, that they might better understand the effects of the disease. Dont let this catch you by surprise—be informed before you face the challenges and difficulties of a loved one with Alzheimer's or dementia. This book can help.

"Thus, the whole world, today, is acknowledging Asians' success, born out of Disciplined Parenting and Culture of rigorous hard-work. The question is- Are we blunting this edge, that our children have - with ... overt pampering? This is what this book is all about? - About making you a parent ! Because the point is - what is your claim to be the parent of the child? - Donating a sperm or an egg to form the embryo. What is so great about it? Even a syringe today can fertilize the egg (in a test tube baby). Then will the syringe & incubator lay claim to be the parent of the child? I know, I sound ludicrous but then so is the suggestion that one becomes a parent just by siring the baby. Remember, great products are forged in great crucibles. So to forge a successful child, we have to cast the mold i.e. you the parent. So, get ready to face this furnace of a book. BEWARE THIS BOOK IS NOT MEANT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED. It is only for the concerned parent, who has what it takes to forge the personality and success of their child. For others there is always fate. - Author

Navigating the Journey of Aging Parents proposes an entirely unique approach to the field of gerontology, giving dependent care receivers a voice. Caregivers will be made aware of what care receivers truly want during life's final chapters. Exploring issues of housing, spirituality, personal care and death, Cheryl Kuba has created a testament to the dependent elderly. This book draws on numerous interviews with aging people and discusses common caregiver mistakes and interpretations, what a caregiver should expect when an aging parent moves in, and how to care for an aging parent from afar. Kuba also delves into such phenomena as guilt, role reversal, changing family dynamics, financial stress, and caring for oneself while caring for another. The 22.4 million elderly people being cared for in the United States comprises the fastest growing segment of the population, making this reference on the opinions and concerns of care receivers invaluable.

Reclaim Your Family with Your Own Family Constitution Both manifesto and handbook, DESPERATELY SEEKING PARENTS: Why Your Child Needs a Parent in Charge and How to Become One calls all parents to reclaim their position of authority in the home. Emphasizing that today’s children need (and ultimately want) parents to assert their sovereignty and control in a loving and consistent manner, Dr. Paterno illustrates how to become a Parent in Charge by using simple, proven methods. The first parenting book to utilize the Family Constitution, Dr. Paterno explicitly champions parents’ rights, simplifies parental expectations and rewards children can earn, and rejects the current trend of reducing expectations because of so-called diseases, disorders, and disabilities. Provocative, but proven and practical, Dr. Paterno will help you reclaim your family by becoming the vital, valid source of love and authority you were meant to be for your children. Praise for DESPERATELY SEEKING PARENTS “Take heed, you and your child are in good hands with the advice that rests between the pages of this wonderful book. Thank the good Lord that there is a writer with the scholarship and good sense to write a book that parents can safely rely on.” ——David Stein, Ph.D., author of Unraveling the ADD/ADHD Fiasco and Ritalin is Not the Answer “If every parent read this book and incorporated Dr. Paterno’s principles and techniques, every pediatrician’s office would see far fewer children with behavior problems.” ——Colette Sabbagh, M.D., Pediatrician, Bangor, Maine “Dr. Paterno has managed to squeeze 3,000 years of common sense and experience, a command of child development and behavioral theory, tons of wit and humor, and dozens of practical solutions into this thoroughly readable parenting guide.” ——Toby Tyler Watson, Psy.D., Executive Director, International Center for the Study of Psychiatry & Psychology
