Creating healthy relationships from broken homes

Creating healthy relationships from broken homes

By Jo Ann Hernandez

LatinaLista — In Parents Who Cheat: How Children and Adults Are Affected When Their Parents Are Unfaithful, Ana Nogales, Ph.D., combines her experience from her thirty-five years of clinical practice with her current research, which includes an unprecedented 'Parents Who Cheat Survey,' to reveal the profound effects on children and adult children when one parent betrays the other.

Parents Who Cheat explains how a child's perception of love and marriage can be forever altered, how self-esteem and trust are often severely damaged, and why adult children, whose parents were unfaithful, often choose unfaithful partners or become unfaithful themselves.

When parents sexually betray each other, children are often left with a host of emotions that reverberate well into adulthood: Shock, rage, shame, confusion, loss of trust --these are common responses of those whose parents were unfaithful.

It is no wonder, then, that an adult child's romantic relationships will be deeply affected by a parent's broken vow.

Ana Nogales offers advice and practical solutions for those children impacted by parental infidelity and lights the way towards the process of healing, forgiveness, and developing healthier and more trusting relationships with both parents and partners.

Jo Ann Hernández is assistant Bookshelf editor and author of the award-winning "White Bread Competition" and "The Throwaway Piece," as well as, creator and publisher of BronzeWord Latino Authors web site.
