Don't Bite Your Tongue

Don't Bite Your Tongue is about parenting adult children. It counters the popular belief that parents must let go of their adult children and silence themselves. The book focuses on the continually lengthening period when both parents and their children are relatively healthy adults. Through the use of vignettes, it reduces the fire and increases the works in their relationships by encouraging dialogue between the two generations. Its self-reflection exercises, film lists, and bibliography can be used alone, in groups, or with adult children. This book provides a guide to navigate the ambiguities and ever-changing realities of the lives of parents and their adult children.
