“Funny but serious,When Parenting Is A Foreign Language made me laugh and made me think. There are a lot of child-rearing books out there—this is also an adult-rearing book. Dr. Ross-Glazer’s special insight is that parenting is a second language—a language that you, yourself, the parent, once spoke when you were a child; and forgot when you learned to speak as an Adult. Dr. Ross-Glazer’s advice, based on her nearly thirty years of practice, is, therefore, that you need to remember your feelings; you need to relearn that language you once spoke, so that you can communicate clearly with your child, and your child can communicate clearly with you. This is a smart, humorous, and kind book—immensely informative.”
