Welcome to the Parenting Your Parents blog!


Parenting Your Parents 3rd EditionOur newest book in the Parenting Your Parents series is just making its appearance. We believe it's more fulsome and robust in terms of content and relevance than the earlier editions.

And we’re committed to more engagement than ever with our readers. In fact, we’ll be posting helpful tips and stories on a regular basis on this site. We’ll also share other useful articles and references that we think will be of interest to you.

That’s because we can see how pressing eldercare in the family is becoming as a North American issue. The needs of aging parents and other loved ones are a reality and challenge millions across our continent are facing. Usually, though, there’s no preparation, no planning, and no safety system in place.

Over the years, we have together and separately written almost a dozen books on various aspects of the challenges and consequences of aging in the family. We each write in other publications and speak extensively on the subject.

What we want to share with you is our knowledge. And all we ask is that you start planning now for the issues that come with aging in the family: inevitable and often intense situations that can take their toll on families and friends in many unwanted ways.

By planning and preparing, you can navigate the uncharted shoals of eldercare more effectively and successfully. That’s what we’re all about and what our books are all about: anticipating, learning, setting the groundwork, helping yourselves and your aging parents and other loved ones do better. The fact is, by preparing now you can change your family’s future.

Thanks for coming by. We hope you’ll keep coming back. Share your thoughts and experiences with us in the comments. And if you know others who are struggling with caring for an aging loved one, please share this site with them.
