Family Relationships in the Second Half of Life 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 grand-kids. 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 book 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.
