How to have Fun with your Aging Parents: I want to go to Lithuania by Christina Britton Conroy is a practical hands-on book. If you really want to connect with your parents, then this book is for you.
It provides a plethora of useful, and the most important for me tried techniques that will enable you to find out how to help your parents, how to become their friends, how to insert yourself into their lives with a positive and helpful way.
This book will enable you to help your parents stop feeling they are worthless, it will show you how to make them be active members of the society again.
I was really impressed by this little self-help book because it covers so much in such short pages. I like this since my philosophy is less is more.
The author through her personal experiences and her work status over the years accumulated valuable knowledge that pours into this book.
Her many examples both from her work and with her father illustrate firsthand how you should use this book to your advantage.
There are a lot of questions in this book since it’s the only way to understand your parents and also yourself better.
My advice is to reap the benefits of this fantastic book ultimately is to read it at least two times. The first time just read it as a magazine, do not study it, just read it.
The second time gets a piece of paper and a pencil or a pen and answer the questions and try to understand the methodology that the books suggest. Furthermore, design your tactic based on your answers that you will use to connect with your parents.
It is a convenient guide which I am sure I will always have as a reference in the future. Plus, I know the author addresses her book specifically to older people or with people that have conditions that affect their memory (dementia, Alzheimer etc.) but I firmly believe that the philosophies, algorithms, and teachings of this book can be applied in all people independently of their age.
In a nutshell, if you have problems with your aging parent then this book guides you from start to bottom on how to cope with a numerous of possible scenarios. I will only make your relationship with your parent better if you apply the suggestions this book offers.
