Always a Parent is quite literally an MRI scan of the parent-child relationship after the children are grown people, and possibly themselves parents. The author examines the inner workings and the push and pull of the Indian family. Parents continue to be deeply invested in their children, well after they become adults. And children continue to draw strength from parents, even when their own world expands, way beyond the parental home. The book takes a close look at how the bond can evolve into a completely new, and extremely enabling and life-affirming one, or can spiral into dysfunction and strife. With the use of real-life situations, Always a Parent delves into what can go wrong, as well as provides tools for preventive maintenance of this precious and demanding relationship that endures from the womb to the grave, and beyond. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Gouri Dange is a family counsellor, bestselling author of fiction and non-fiction, and newspaper columnist. Growing up in Singapore, Mumbai, and Pune, she has always been a people-watcher. In her writing, as well as her counselling practice, she is deeply empathic with "people who get their sums wrong" and the human struggle to fix the arithmetic of our lives. 

Gouri's writing ranges from the gently humorous, to the reflective. She enjoys a large readership, with readers, bloggers, and editors writing in regularly, expressing their appreciation and delight at her style and content. 

Both her books on parenting have gone into several editions. She has written three novels that are a nuanced study of the human situation in all its triumphs and failures. Her long-running column Learning Curve with Mint-Lounge has a huge fan following. She has a widely read social-satire weekly column with The Mirror (TOI) and contributes features and essays to The Hindu. 

Gouri also conducts writing workshops, where she guides participants to synthesise and transform what they experience, perceive, and imagine into words. Her workshops include a self-awareness module, where she teaches how to use writing as a tool for self-discovery.
