Condescending

Would you try another book from Gail Parent and Susan Ende and/or Karen White?

I couldn't finish this book. It's directed toward people in tremendous pain, but its tones quite disrespectful. It's answers are pat, and the authers seem to be too caught up in mutual congratulation to be of servive to the reader.

Would you ever listen to anything by Gail Parent and Susan Ende again?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of Karen White’s performances?

No

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from How to Raise Your Adult Children?

The repeated responses beginning with derogatory labels are unnecessary.

Any additional comments?

Read this if you're helped by pat, formulaic answers. In my experience as both a therapist and a mother, the challenge of dealing with adult children is extremely complex.
