This self-help literature is addressed to people, who, as adults, still suffer from the followings of a difficult mother-child-relationship. The book searches for the responsibilities of these unhealed wounds, rather than simply put the blame on the mother. First of all, the mother is responsible to build a safe and intimate binding with the dependent child. If this, due to difficulties on the mother´s side, does not work, it is the adult child´s responsibilities, to free itself from the ballast of the family, to discover the self and take over control of his own life. The authors are taking the inner child of the reader carefully and understandingly by the hand, to recognize, to understand and to weaken the subtle, perpetual and excessive relatedness on the mother. The overall goal of the book is, to break the transgenerational circle of passing on the onerous psychological family inheritance.
