Description
Guilt. Affection. Embarrassment. Friendship. Anger. Love. Who can bring out all these feelings...and often in the same day? Your mother. No matter how mature or successful we are in our adult lives, with one word our mothers can somehow send us scurrying back to childhood. Can mothers and adult children ever learn to set aside their earlier relationship and talk to each other as adults? In this warm, funny book, dozens of revealing stories from such well-known personalities as Colin Powell, Helena Bonham Carter, Mia Farrow, and Lauren Hutton show that it "is" possible to improve your relationship with your mother -- or at the very least begin to understand it. Alyce Faye Cleese and Brian Bates include a practical ten-step plan and questionaire to help you get on track with your mother. You will learn to address specific issues and develop valuable insights that will help you start thinking about your mother in a profoundly new way.

display_description This book explores how different people have dealt with the issues related to getting on with their mothers. Psychotherapist Alyce-Faye Cleese interviewed a wide range of people to get an in-depth understanding of the different questions that arise in our relationships with our mother. From a New York taxi driver to her former husband John Cleese, and a computer consultant to General Colin Powell, the interviews show a remarkable similarity between the problems different people have with their mothers both alive and dead, and Alyce-Faye Cleese suggests a range of ways of dealing with problems that many of us share in one way or another.
