Bewildered, she exclaimed, “Did she have psychological problems?” I was stunned. I had just told my real estate agent I was selling my house because my wife left me nine months ago. A few years ago, we bought a house in the Akron area. My wife rode around town with this real estate agent looking for a home. When I told the agent she had left me, the she said, “She talked you up so well, I honestly believed she thought you were a god!” I replied, “I used to be, but now I’m a demon from Hades.” Neither me or my wife had spoken to this agent before or since she sold us our house. That’s just a small sample of the paradox I had lived the previous twelve years. My first wife died, suddenly, leaving me alone with our seven year old boy. A year later, I married my second wife. Now, my second period of grieving was to begin. Through the course of the following pages you will cruise along the path of a man who laments the loss of his first wife and tries to make sense of life in general. Suddenly however, in the midst of the book, his present wife leaves him. This devastation twists the book into a peculiar direction as he expresses his grief in the loss of his second wife, then in Part III, tells his story of the agonies involved in living with a Borderline wife. In Part IV, the book produces evidence that convinces him she has Borderline Personality Disorder, then elaborates further on how it affected him and his son. Finally, in Part V, as an afterthought, he discusses the fact that he may be narcissistic after all and this narcissism may have drawn him to his BPD wife and helps explain how they stayed together for so long.

Menschen mit einer Borderline-Störung sind unbeständig und sprunghaft, impulsiv und selbstzerstörerisch und sie haben Angst vor dem Verlassen werden. Die Kinder von Borderline-Müttern wachsen in einer verwirrenden emotionalen Welt auf. Die Bindung zur emotional unstabilen Mutter ist unsicher. Das Buch handelt von Borderline-Müttern und vor allem von deren Kindern, welche unter den Stimmungsschwankungen und psychotischen Anfällen der Mütter leiden und verzweifelt nach Strategien der Bewältigung dieser Erlebnisse suchen. Die Autorin untersucht vier Typen von Borderline-Persönlichkeiten, wie sie von den Kindern wahrgenommen werden: die verwahrloste Mutter, die Einsiedlerin, die Königin und die Hexe. Die Autorin zeigt, wie man sich um die Verwahrloste kümmern kann, ohne sie retten zu müssen, wie die Einsiedlerin geliebt werden kann, ohne ihrer Angst Nahrung zu geben, wie man die Königin liebt, ohne ihr Untertan zu werden und wie man mit der Hexe lebt, ohne ihr Opfer zu werden.

Parenting expert Carl E. Pickhardt brings his considerable experience to tackling the most pervasive and difficult problems parents face in childrearing. Whereas many books on family conflict focus on the prickly teenage years, Pickhardt takes the long view and treats a broad range of ages--starting from the early toddler years all the way through college. He empowers parents to turn conflict into an opportunity to engage with their children on a deeper level. Readers will learn to: - Manage emotion during a fight so that you can hear the feelings behind the vitriol without taking offense. - Give criticism to children in a way that focuses on the behavior and not the person. - Find a hook inside silent tension that will let you connect with your children's feelings and show them a way to empathize with yours. - Consider your children's point of view during a disagreement and teach them to voice their grievances with respect. With a distinctive emphasis on how to distinguish types of conflict dependent on age and gender, Pickhardt shows parents how to turn the daily battles into opportunities for growth. This is a practical guide that helps parents confront difficult issues with which all families grapple.
