|This is the third book I’ve read that Allison Bottke has written and once again, I am encouraged and enlightened by her book. Though she writes it from the perspective of the parent dealing with a troubled child, her book serves as a manual for relating to siblings, relatives and friends who are troubled. Allison herself is no stranger to troubled adult children as she is very forthcoming about her own struggles with her incarcerated son. Through tips, steps and personal stories in this book, the tools are available for developing healthy boundaries, healing and restoring your sanity in dealing with these types of individuals. While I don’t have troubled adult children, I have struggled with a troubled sibling that I needed to learn to set boundaries. Allison’s book is a great companion to 12-step groups and can help you become healthier and more equipped in dealing with anyone in your life that is getting the better of you. There is hope and help available! Her book is encouraging, heartfelt and uses scripture passages to reach her audience. I highly recommend this and all of her books to give you hope as well as the tools to survive and thrive.
* I was provided a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author and volunteered for the opportunity to provide an honest, impartial review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all thoughts and opinions I have expressed are entirely my own
