Of course you love your parents--but they're driving you crazy!
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
They’re overly demanding, inpatient, unreasonable, self-centered and selfish, and expect everyone to drop everything for them at a moment’s notice. And they act so juvenile!
No, not the kids. This dissertation deals with the older generation - AKA Mommy and Daddy. As they enter their golden years and can’t get around like they used to, they often turn to their grown children for help – lots of help.
For anyone feeling caught between a rock and a hard place, it’s time to turn to “ParenTapped – A Guide for the Sandwiched Generation," by Bitingduck Press/Boson Books non-fiction author Lou De Lena. This e-book takes a heartfelt and humorous look into the world of parental caregiving. It provides some insight into what can be a trying situation--that is, dealing with elderly parents and their needs on a regular basis--coupled with valuable information regarding services for both seniors and caregivers. Interactive links allow the reader to switch rapidly from the text to on-line resources.
It is based primarily on the author’s and others' personal experiences in dealing with aging parents. The author, Lou DeLena, has previously published a nonfiction guide to domestic chores for the domestically challenged. Mopping Tall – The Hubby’s Guide to Housework and Other Dangerous Jobs was released by Boson Books in 2003. Lou is a native of Medford, MA and holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Suffolk University. He has worked as a radio announcer, technical writer and cemetery laborer, and is currently employed as a Procurement Coordinator for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
