Whether you’re the parent who can’t get your child to return phone calls or the adult child who dreads a visit home, most of us wish family relations were easier. On Sunday, May 4, author Jane Isay will speak on “Navigating Relationships Between Adult Children and Parents.” Her talk, sponsored by the Hevesi Jewish Heritage Library of the Central Queens YM&YWHA, will be at the Reform Temple of Forest Hills, at 71-11 112 Street, at 10 a.m. Admission to Isay’s talk is $7 and includes a light kosher brunch. Isay will speak on her bestselling book, Walking on Eggshells, a gentle guide for perplexed parents and frustrated adult children…

[H]er book offers new ways to stay close while navigating the issues that most often create conflict. As high school kids head off to college and others graduate, her talk is a timely reminder of the ways in which parents need to grow along with their grown kids.

Jane Isay has been Editor-in Chief at Harcourt Books, with a career as editor for some of the groundbreaking authors in psychology and child development, including Mary Pipher and Alice Miller. She has appeared on NBC’s Today Show, and CBS’s Early Show.
