KIRKUS REVIEW

Some perceptive insights in cartoon form into the eery mass of parent-child relationships which keep psychoanalysts' couches occupied. A parade of parents who want their children to feel STRONG no matter how they feel; those who bring up the child to suppress unpleasant feelings, until the child is uncertain of his real feelings, parents who ""ration their love like cookies' and others who direct their own neuroses into the child. A serious, thoughtful analysis in humorous form investigating the tensions and frustrations in parent-child problems. A postscript by Mary and Lawrence K Frank, questions at the end of each chapter, and bibliography will facilitate the use of this book in and class-room groups.
