Lewis, M.D. senior research psychiatrist, Timberlawn Research Foundation (Dallas) Harville Hendrix and his wife, Helen Hunt, have cowritten a remarkable new book on parenting....In this book the authors suggest that early experiences with parents may lead to unresolved issues that later surface in one's own parenting....The book is filled with arresting ideas and practical guidelines. It will be a wonderful value to many readers, and I recommend it to all parents.

My favorite parts of the book are the detailed explanations of the chronological stages of a child's life; the explanation and examples of symbiotic parenting; and the explanation of how we learn to parent how are parents parented us, which is how they were parented, ad infinitum, with the assurance that we can break the cycle of mistakes.
This is a book for parents who are committed to helping their children navigate through life, even though it requires some self-discovery. It is not a book for a parent who wants a quick solution, because this requires commitment. For me, the healing that resulted in myself, my child and our relationship went far beyond what I was asking for, making the commitment a bargain at any price.
Getting the Love You Want was short and to the point. I think this book, Giving the Love that Heals, could have been 1/3 the length of what it is. We are a busy people, and shouldn't have to put up with writing that says nothing. This drives me crazy!
I am sure there is something worthwhile in the book, but believe me, you have to skim it quickly to get to those points.
I highly recommend the book.
