Good Counseling/Self-Help Books for Children of Crazy Mothers??
The title pretty much says it all.
My husband is wonderful, but his mom is emotionally needy and manipulative because of it. We can't afford counseling for him at the moment so I'd love some suggestions for books that will help him hold his boundaries while dealing with her and maybe even keep her from pushing his buttons altogether.
And no, cutting off all contact isn't something he wants to do.
Hiring a hit man is also out of the question. (At least for now.)
Sign me up! Haven't spoken to my Mom since 2 Thanksgivings ago. Wouldn't help her look for her Credit card(that I saw her throw loose in the bottom of her purse) and she went Ape Sh*#!!! Her loss. (Side bar; I am from Michigan, she lives in TN, and I was visiting and staying 45 min away.
