The Buddhist tradition is a natural fit for family challenges that test the limits of our endurance. In this program about caring for an aging parent, the author's emotional authority makes this particular challenge acceptable and even attractive. Her language is that of social work, but her voice is Buddhist -- peaceful and integrated with the universal good. Using the knowledge framework of geriatrics and late-life emotional growth, she asks listeners to think about why their parents are difficult, rather than just reacting to them. Do the emotional work, pace the involvement to preserve the self, and learn what you can about being old. An essential program for anyone facing this kind of task. T.W.
