Conveniently Putting Parents on the Back Burner

We hear it all of the time – we live in a fast paced society and it’s a tough world out there. Many of us grow up, leave home, and are soon caught up in our daily lives. While it isn’t fair to say that we forget about our parents and guardians, we do seem to (conveniently) put them on the back burner. As absurd as it seems, we put the same people whose entire lives (for a portion in time) were dedicated to us, the people that we were completely dependant on to survive, on the shelf – and it seems perfectly normal.

Sometimes, we feel nervous touching base with them again. For some of us who do see our parents or talk to those who raised us regularly, it’s usually because we only turn to them in times of need. And when things are going good for us, our parents cannot find some of us.

We must remember that there comes a time in our parents’ lives when they need us. That’s mostly what Manish Patel’s book, ‘Second Childhood’ is about – not just getting ourselves to be present for one of our next roles in life, but also preparing for it mentally. Many of us were blessed with guardians and parents who taught us how to love and how to be better people. Second Childhood is about being prepared when those lessons of love and goodness are tested.

Manish explores what it means to truly stay positive and grateful even in the face of adversity. He reminds us how to love another person while being the best friend, child, and parent possible. We invite you to read inspiring accounts that you can all relate to in your life. You will probably laugh, cry, worry and cheer for Manish and the remarkable people who share their stories throughout Second Childhood. Using his medical knowledge, access to seniors in his role as a physical therapist, and insight from personal experiences – Manish explores human relationships to remind us to return the love to those who paved the way for us to be in this moment.

Second Childhood is available in the United States, Denmark, France, Italy, India and more. It’s available in paperback and e-book formats across the web.
