Borderline Mom: A Quick & Dirty Manual of Emotional Self Defense for Children is a new title by Georgiana Wright for people dealing with a mother suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), whether formally diagnosed or simply suspected.

These people often are afraid of the Borderline and can spend years being manipulated and controlled via abusive tactics, rages, and false blaming.
