Those raised by a BPD parent endured a volatile and painful childhood. This book offers readers step-by-step guidance to understanding and overcoming the lasting effects of being raised by a person with this disorder. Readers discover coping strategies for dealing with low self-esteem, lack of trust, guilt, and hypersensitivity.
If "Stop Walking on Eggshells" has become the bible for people with a borderline family member, I predict that "Surviving a Borderline Parent "will become the 'must have' book for people who have a parent with borderline traits. Authors Kimberlee Roth and Freda Friedman have done a stunning job of validating the isolating experience of these 'adult children, ' and more importantly, shown them how to overcome the constant feelings of guilt, abnormality, and self-doubt. This book belongs on the shelf of every clinician and adult child with a borderline parent." * Randi Kreger, author of "Stop Walking on Eggshells" *
