Rita Sommers-FlanaganProblem Child or Quirky Kid?: A Commonsense Guide for Parents
Many parents wonder, "Is my child normal?" They may be concerned about their child’s behaviors, attitudes, feelings, or general development. They may worry if their child doesn’t seem to be fitting in socially, isn’t happy, isn’t getting along with others, or seems overly anxious, fearful, sad or angry. This book gives parents the advice, reassurance, and practical knowledge they need to help their child and themselves. Drawing on their years as counselors and teachers, the authors consider what’s "normal" and what might not be "normal." They cover common childhood problems and suggest remedies for parents to try at home. After describing difficulties that might be more rare and serious, they explain the world of mental health professionals, then offer ideas for getting oneself and one’s child ready to take advantage of professional help. The message throughout is clear: What’s best is when our children are neither normal or abnormal, but simply able to live well.

Kimberlee RothSurviving a Borderline Parent: How to Heal Your Childhood Wounds
and Build Trust, Boundaries, and Self-Esteem

Surviving a Borderline Parent is the first step-by-step guide for adult children of parents with borderline personality disorder. Between 6 and 10 million people in the US suffer from borderline personality disorder. This book teaches adult children how to overcome the devastating effects of growing up with a parent who suffers from BPD. Although relatively common, borderline personality disorder (BPD) is often overlooked or misdiagnosed by therapists and clinicians and denied by those who suffer from it. Symptoms of this problem include unpredictability, violence and uncontrollable anger, deep depression and self-abuse. Parents with BPD are often unable to provide for the basic physical and emotional needs of their children. In an ironic and painful role reversal, BPD parents can actually raise children to be their caretakers. They may burden even very young children with adult responsibilities.
