In “The Perfect Family Storm: Tips to Restore Mental Health and Strengthen Family Relationships in Today's World” (published by Balboa Press), Cathy L. Reimers, Ph.D., delves into the pressures that are currently inflicting instability upon American families and offers insight on how best to overcome the forces that threaten to ruin the family unit.

“I was inspired by the truth in writing this book and the truth is that families along with everyone else are in storms of stress,” Reimers says. “It's not just one storm but there are many storms pounding families.”

With over 25 years of experience in counseling, Reimers has discerned a myriad of problems that plague family life: violence, addiction, dishonesty and financial strain continue to be primary culprits—but Reimers says the onset of burgeoning social media technology numbs familial communication and keeps society in collective silence.

“I want my readers to develop skills of insightful parenting, which involves being truthful. There is no perfect parent, child or family,” she explains. “First forgive yourself and then your child on a daily basis. How you react and steps that you take as parent will be your children’s future steps.”
