Parenting Handicapped, adopted children and almost failing

A book about women for women, particularly those who ‘hover’– parents who constantly seek to be perfect mothers and people.

Dena Higley hovered over her family until the day her world bushwhacked her and she fell apart. Through an unexpected major glitch in dreams for her oldest daughter she slowly recognized her need to control everyone and everything and to not always rescue her family– to let them develop the character God intended them to have.

Higley writes with a lively, compelling style, with unrelenting honesty. Her story begins with her trip to the Emergency Room from an overdose of vodka. Then she explains the difficult lives her children deal with. This author’s family problems will awe you. Many of us could fall apart from less.

After her dramatic first chapter Higley tells readers what is truly wonderful about her children and husband. She explains the symptoms of helicopter momism to help other parents escape similarities. She began finding answers to her destructive behavior when she accepted her need for help.

Throughout the book we hear a talented growing human who discovers how to enjoy life. Grand-parents as well as parents can benefit from this absorbing account of a family.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.
