Summary

If you have a daughter with borderline personality disorder (BPD), you may feel frustration, shame, and your family may be at the breaking point dealing with angry outbursts, threats, and constant emergencies. You may even feel guilty for not enjoying spending time with your child - but how can you when her behavior is abusive toward you and the rest of your family? You need solid skills you can use now to help your daughter and hold your family together.

In this important guide, you'll learn real solutions and strategies based in proven-effective DBT and CBT to help you weather the storm of BPD and restore a sense of normalcy and balance in your life. You'll find an overview of BPD so you can better understand the driving forces behind your daughter's difficult behavior. You'll discover how you can help your daughter get the help she needs while also setting boundaries that foster respect and self-care for you and others in your family. And, most importantly, you'll learn "emergency parenting techniques" to help you put a stop to abusive patterns and restore peace.

If your daughter has BPD and your family is struggling to make it through each day, this book offers essential skills to help you cope and recover a sense of stability.

Most helpful book on the subject yet

I think the doctor interviewed my daughter for this book. I am joking but it sounds exactly like my daughter...Extremely helpful. Provides coping strategies for the parents of BPD daughters. My daughter is a grown woman but this was still very helpful in explaining her behavior.

We/she has seen numerous therapists over many years. This was the most enlightened info have gotten to date. Highly recommend

Amazing and thorough

This book saved my 12 year olds life and our family. We caught her BPD early and in just a few months she behaves like a normal child. No more explosions, violence or severe anxiety. No more perseveration. You must work together with your spouse and follow the book exactly. You must understand extinction bursts and be prepared for it. It often seems like the behavior just got exponentially worse. You must push through and hold steady. It was shocking when it happened. The most terrible outrageous behavior ever seen. Recommend wholeheartedly

Do not get this audiobook

The narrator’s voice is basically intolerable. Tone, cadence, phrasing- ugh. Just don’t get this audiobook. This is the types of text that needs to be read with warmth and a sense of empathy. This sounds like a snarky robot is reading it.

Good look into this disorder

The narration was boring and sometimes there was no separation from one part to the next. The information in this book is very helpful and gives me a feeling of hopefulness and manageability. I think this book is a good resource and I recommend this book.

Great resource for parenting all teens!

I've begun to suspect one of mine has BPD. She's too young to be diagnosed, but this book helped me practically. It reinforced that most of us ARE good parents, don't let the difficult child define you. It tells typical behaviors that BPD's have and how to face them. It's right on as far as describing my experiences. It's good to know we are not alone, and there is help. I believe kids can heal this- or prevent it from coming to fruition, with the right tools. We need more therapists to acknowledge the specific problems without diagnosing, and to give parents the tools and advice that is fitting. I wish I had this tool years and years ago. If you're a parent, read it.
