The FIRST self-help book for CHILDREN of HOARDERS!
Part pop-culture snapshop, part self-help, part memoir.
Are you looking to hear stories from other children who have gone through the same thing you have; or simply a voyeur, fascinated by hoarders?
An estimated six million to fifteen million people in the United States are hiding a big dirty secret. They are hoarders. Shockingly, many of them have children living in their hoard. Those parents that don't may have had their children taken away; their children may live with a different parent; or they are adults living on their own.
Each of the aforementioned scenarios presents a different challenge for the child and the hoarder
Many familial relationships have been irrevocably harmed by a parent's hoarding. Until now, non-fiction, self-help books about hoarding have all focused on the hoarder.
Together with Grace Brooke, professional organizer and also the child of a hoarder, Natasha Rosenstock will examine the lasting effects of growing up with a hoarding parent in the upcoming book, No Room for Me: Children of Hoarders.
