Dr. Dan Neuharth draws on his experience as a therapist specializing in helping adults cope with the challenges of a controlled childhood. He defines eight types of controlling parents and includes a self-test to determine if the reader grew up over-controlled. Using case studies from a diverse group of adults, Dr. Neuharth explains that unhealthy control is often a generations-old cycle that readers can break by seeing the roots of the cycle. He shows readers how to leave home emotionally so they can improve assertiveness, boundaries, and confidence, come to terms with their parents, and lead fuller, more rewarding lives.
