Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

Based on the self-help classic, Stop Walking on Eggshells, this essential guide offers powerful skills and strategies for parenting a child of any age with borderline personality disorder (BPD)-without sacrificing their family or themselves.

If you have a child with BPD, you are all-too-aware of the behavioral and emotional issues that are linked to this disorder-including rages, self-harm, sexual acting out, substance abuse, suicidal behaviors, physical and emotional attacks, and more. Traditional parenting strategies that work on other kids just don't work with a borderline child. But you shouldn't lose hope. The good news is that there are parenting strategies that do work.

With this comprehensive resource, you will learn all about borderline personality disorder, how it shows up in children, adolescents, and your adult children, how to obtain proper treatment, and how to manage your child's condition at home. You'll find proven-effective strategies to help you communicate and improve your relationship with your child of any age, and, as a result, improve your own life as a parent and an individual. You'll also find real stories and advice from parents who have also experienced raising a child with BPD.

Most importantly, you'll learn how to maintain boundaries and validate your child while also meeting your own needs. Whether your child is 5 or 25, this book offers tools to help you and your family thrive.

From The Publisher*Drawing on the same powerful approach outlined in the self-help classic, Stop Walking on Eggshells-which has sold more than 1.5 million copies worldwide-this essential guide offers skills and strategies for parenting a child of any age with borderline personality disorder (BPD). With this book, readers will learn better ways to communicate and improve their relationship with their borderline child, and improve their own lives as parents and individuals.
