A few months ago, I read an advance copy of science writer Paul Raeburn s new memoir, Acquainted with the Night In it, he chronicles how first his son, then his daughter, fell into the grip of violent and frightening manic depression It s the print equivalent of Weezer s infamous Pinkerton album something so raw and personal that you want to look away.Raeburn and his wife Liz had three children Matt, Alex, and Alicia When the children were about 15, 11, and 9, Alex began to have behavior problem [...]

Raeburn is a skilled writer and his memoir of a family stricken with the pain of depression and bipolar disorder was hard to put down His story hit very close to home, as my eldest daughter was also diagnosed bipolar while still quite young 10 yrs old and I faced the same struggles he recounts Reading his account infuriated me the fights w insurance companies, the dearth of mental health services, esp for kids, etc but it was also somewhat cathartic I wept for him and his family but also felt le [...]

Wow I will be pondering this man s story for a long time Raeburn, a science writer, tells the story of two of his children developing symptoms of mental illness rapid cycle bipolar and severe depression in their early teens, and the roller coaster journey it turned out to be for the entire family I appreciated his candor about the guilt and confusion he felt as a parent, the constant second guessing, mostly due to a lack of understanding but also, intially, a denial of their mental illness Not a [...]

I am grateful that Raeburn was willing to write the story of his family s struggle,but it is a difficult read Not just because of the many sad things that happen, but because it is not told exactly chronologically or thematically, and includes memoir as well as information about mental healthcare for children It s incredibly wrenching to read of his struggles in his marriage and in parenting he doesn t pretty things up for the reader.

This is a book about the author s children who became mentally ill His son with biopolar disorder and their daughter from severe depression It follows the children through stays in mental hospitals, medications, suicide attempts, etc I stopped about halfway through because it was too depressing The book also contains a subplot about the author s failing marriage He and his wife were headed for a nasty divorce and this was obviously exacerbating the kids problems.

Ended up choosing this book from a list on childhood disorders to read for a class I can t say it was an enjoyable experience, but it also wasn t a terrible book Reading the personal accounts with his son s bipolar disorder and his daughter s depression was definitely interesting though.

Did not finish, but liked what I read It was too hard for me to read at the time as my own daughter had just been diagnosed I plan to go back and finish it some time.

A journalist s memoire about trying to decipher parenting his mentally ill children Tough read, but insightful Definately has a journalist s tone of voice throughout.

Very honest and introspective with well done research on the state of mental health systems in the US

This one is hard for me to read with becoming overwhelmed with anxiety about raising my own children He really brings you into his struggles.

To sum up How to irretrievably f ck up your kids through your appalling parentinge end.

fascinating story.terribly parenting.
