Synopsis

We don’t stop being parents when our kids are grown...but some things do change.

Life is filled with change. As our sons and daughters move into young adulthood, our role of what it means to be loving parents changes dramatically.


This book aims to help readers miss as many potholes as possible in making the transition from parenting children to being parents of young adults. Here are ways to  nurture our adult children while encouraging their independence and maturity. Learn to have  balance. Here is how to respond to them in times of struggle. Readers will see how to be supportive, yet not intrusive, caring without enabling dependency.



The questions are important. The answers are not obvious. It is a new day in our relationships with our children. The page has been turned, and we are now writing the new chapter in the life of our family. It is important that we get it right.
