Bringing the serious topic of postparenting out into the light, this is a humorous collection of insightful anecdotes on the perils and pleasures of being a parent of boomerang kids in the 21st century. Among the issues covered are dealing with adult children's emotional state and often-staggering credit card debt and what to do with their numerous personal possessions. An alternative to more formal how-to books, this is a clever narrative of successful living with adult children.

Are you a middle-aged parent who expected to be enduring/enjoying the Empty Nest Syndrome, but instead find your house occupied by large, loud young adults? Or perhaps you're still living at home with the folks, even though it's seriously cramping your style. Don't despair - you're not alone In fact, you're part of a rapidly expanding, world-wide phenomenon of young adults living at home well into their twenties and thirties. Some families thrive on this situation, but for many it can be severely trying. Parenting books don't talk about kids over eighteen, but this is when the least recognised and most demanding phase of the parent/child relationship may begin. And it's also when parents can find themselves, without map or compass, in completely uncharted waters. In this much-needed book, Sue Jackson lifts the lid on life in the crowded nest and provides valuable pointers on how to make the most of it.

Americans are living longer, and the elder population is growing larger. To meet the ongoing need for quality information on elder health, the Encyclopedia of Aging and Public Health combines multiple perspectives to offer readers a more accurate and complete picture of the aging process. The book takes a biopsychosocial approach to the complexities of its subject. In-depth introductory chapters include coverage on a historical and demographic overview of aging in America, a guide to biological changes accompanying aging, an analysis of the diversity of the U.S. elder population, legal issues commonly affecting older adults, and the ethics of using cognitively impaired elders in research. From there, over 425 entries cover the gamut of topics, trends, diseases, and phenomena: -Specific populations, including ethnic minorities, custodial grandparents, and centenarians -Core medical conditions associated with aging, from cardiac and pulmonary diseases to Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s -Mental and emotional disorders -Drugs/vitamins/alternative medicine -Disorders of the eyes, feet, and skin -Insomnia and sleep disorders; malnutrition and eating disorders -Sexual and gender-related concerns -And a broad array of social and political issues, including access to care, abuse/neglect, veterans’ affairs, and assisted suicide Entries on not-quite-elders’ concerns (e.g., midlife crisis, menopause) are featured as well. And all chapters and entries include references and resource lists. The Encyclopedia has been developed for maximum utility to clinicians, social workers, researchers, and public health professionals working with older adults. Its multidisciplinary coverage and scope of topics make this volume an invaluable reference for academic and public libraries.

When the Merit Times launched in Taiwan in 2001, Venerable Master Hsing Yun began writing the daily column "Between Ignorance and Enlightenment." With each column, Master Hsing Yun considered different topics from culture, politics, and literature, as well as the common experiences of everyday life to show the possibility to learn and grow in any situation. Now available in English, the Between Ignorance and Enlightenment series collects the very best of this groundbreaking column. Each volume captures the spontaneity and breadth that has endeared Between Ignorance and Enlightenment to readers around the world, and displays the immediacy for which the column is named: that this next moment, this next thought, may be the difference between ignorance and enlightenment.

For most college and university psychology departments, the Introduction to Psychology course is the prerequisite course for admission into most other courses within the major. It is the "gateway" course. A problem arises for many students who would like to take an advance level psychology course, but it has been quite some time since they completed their introductory course. With the passage of time, many of the concepts and principles now seem hazy. The purpose of this book is to provide a resource for such students. This book is designed to help bridge this gap of knowledge. Unlike a typical Introduction to Psychology textbook that is steeped in detail and designed for the student who has not yet been exposed to the ideas of the discipline, this book is a quick and basic review of the essential topics and ideas students need to be mindful of in their advance psychology courses. This book serves as refresher reading for the previous introductory psychology student.

In this major new introduction to family studies and the sociology of the family, Richard J Gelles shows the links between the institutional constraints shaping family structure and processes and the family environment itself. A sensitivity to family diversity across history, gender, nationality, culture and age, as well as a strong focus on the theoretical and research bases, are important features of the book. There are also extensive discussions of contemporary topics such as: family violence; later life families; the variety of family structures and practices in different cultures and nationalities; the work//family nexus; and family stress.

This textbook introduces students to the study of marriage and the family in ways to which they can easily relate. Giving equal attention to people of all racial, ethnic, and other societal groups, the author shows students that as families continue to change, they have more and more choices, but that those choices are also subject to often serious constraints on both the macro and micro level. The author's approach encourages students to think for themselves, and practical guidelines in every chapter encourage them to go beyond thought to action - to become part of the effort to resolve some of the crucial issues that confront all 21st-century families.
