Publisher's Description

Parenting doesn't stop when the children grow up, and the nest doesn't always empty when or how parents thought it would. The role changes, but the sense of responsibility continues. Licensed counselor and life coach Nancy Williams draws from professional and personal experience, and also brings in the perspectives of young adults to guide readers in building healthy relationships with adult children. Her insight, encouragement, and advice will help readers navigate everything from prolonged adolescence and boundary struggles to disappointing choices our children make.

    Nancy Williams has written an encouraging and information-packed guide for parents who find themselves puzzled by their new role as mom or dad to adult children, whether your children have just graduated from high school or have been on their own for some time. Each chapter is valuable, and readers will find themselves returning to specific chapters from time to time as their children's life situations change.

    Nancy makes the difficult transition from parent and child to coach and friend seem possible. She doesn't gloss over the need for parents to evaluate our own actions and deal with our own emotions, or the need for adult children to assume responsibility for themselves. One of the best aspects of the book is the myriad of true stories; the other is the helpful examples of how to talk with adult children friend to friend.

    Nancy rightfully acknowledges that all parents do make mistakes, but at times she seems to imply that we all taught our children well regardless. Parents who know they neglected important teaching might find this makes them uncomfortable. Otherwise, there's nothing negative about this helpful book, and readers will want to keep it on their nightstands to refer to frequently.
