As a 28 year old mother this book definitely helped me prepare for the developmental passages that are to come for me and my family.
I wish I had this book before my marriage fell apart.
I was asked to edit this book by the publisher. I found it so helpful - my mother had just died and Dr. Fishman's perspective and advice helped me greatly.
