Nationally known psychologist Ana Ledwin Nogales addresses the affects of parental infidelity on childhood development—and on these children's relationships as adults Many books explore the affects of marital infidelity on a marriage, but Parents Who Cheat is the first book to examine not only how this behavior contributes to the breakdown of a family structure but how it directly affects the children in that family. With compassion and piercing insight, Dr. Ana Ledwin Nogales explains how adultery damages a child's understanding of love, marriage, and trust. As these children grow toward adulthood, their ability to have healthy relationships is compromised. Through stories of children struggling to understand their parents' adultery, as well as case histories of adult children coping with unresolved issues related to parental infidelity, Dr. Nogales shows how destructive habits are formed and points the way toward healing and the creation of healthier relationships with parents and partners.

Perhaps the most powerful thread weaving through both Maria's personal story and her advice on traveling a holistic path, is the message that women must rediscover their mothering intuition and learn to trust their gut instincts. Listening to one's inner voice is one of the greatest skills any parent can cultivate, whether they choose to follow holistic parenting, or a more conventional route." -- Nancy Peplinsky, founder and executive director, Holistic Moms Network "Maria's path of discovery has achieved something very rare and precious. That she has been willing to share her wisdom with us is a priceless gift." -- Kim John Payne, M.Ed., author of Simplicity Parenting, Beyond Winning, and The Soul of Discipline.
