Have you heard the words, "I never dared to treat my parents the way kids do today? If you are a baby boomer or the parent of a tween, teen, or adult child, not only have you heard those words, you may have uttered them yourself. If, in this new age of child-parent relations, you've ever felt like a helpless puppy or kitten inside a box marked "Free to Good Home"-if, in spite of all your love and the care with which you embraced parenting, your child has grown into an entitled and thoughtless power broker in your relationship-read on. Author Kay Taylor has studied sociology, parenting, blended families and personal growth for years; in this bold, groundbreaking book she explores the changes in our culture that she believes have given birth to what she describes as the E-generation-a generation of teens and young adults that feel so empowered and entitled that they often clash with their parents, creating a palpable power struggle within the family. This often leaves good parents alone, depressed, and completely befuddled as to what they did wrong. Free Mother to Good Home comes from the heart and experiences of an everyday parent in the trenches. Taylor offers a mother's perspective, as well as a remedy for parental blues, helping parents know what they can do to get their houses and their lives back in order.

About the Author:

Kay Taylor is in a unique position to understand human behavior and the inner-personal struggles and relationship dynamics and challenges that modern life and parenthood presents. Having lived with over a hundred foster children during her formative and teen years, and being forcibly married off at the age of sixteen and then raising two children alone while working two jobs and attending college, Ms. Taylor offers a unique and insightful view of what it's like to be mother, working single parent, and stepmother to what she refers to as E-generation children (children who compete with their parents for power and control). Professionally, Ms. Taylor worked as a staff writer for a national magazine and later as a freelance writer for several newspapers, television, and commercial print media. After a successful career in corporate America later in her life, Ms. Taylor retired to Florida where she and her husband Neil enjoy boating, cycling, and time spent with family, friends, and their beloved dogs and parrot Kahlua, who Kay and Neil jokingly refer to as the only children they've had together. In Free Mother to Good Home, Kay Taylor speaks to new millennia challenges from a parent's perspective, as well as from the place from which all human needs arise-the heart. And from that sacred place, she addresses the human need and desire to experience self awareness, self respect, and authentic love and connection.
