North­eastern University’s “Meet the Author” series wel­comes author and edu­cator Dr. Ruth Nemzoff.

Nem­zoff will dis­cuss her guide, Don’t Bite Your Tongue, which offers strate­gies for par­ents on main­taining close rela­tion­ships with their grown chil­dren. To have a rewarding rela­tion­ship, Nem­zoff says par­ents must become an active part of their children’s lives while still respecting them enough to make their own choices. Nem­zoff comes to North­eastern as part of Par­ents’ Weekend Programming.

Don’t Bite Your Tongue is rec­og­nized by Jim Roo­sevelt, CEO of Tufts Health Plan and Ann Roo­sevelt, co-​​founder of the Mass­a­chu­setts League of Envi­ron­mental Voters, for pro­viding par­ents with a “ground­breaking book on how to foster parent-​​adult child closeness.”

Cre­ating an active long dis­tance rela­tion­ship and dis­cussing finan­cial issues will help par­ents strengthen their rela­tion­ship with their childen, Nem­zoff says.

You will laugh and cry as you rec­og­nize your­self in these pages, but most of all, you and your adult chil­dren will learn how to have a loving and sup­portive rela­tion­ship,” Jim and Ann Roo­sevelt say.
