Publisher's Description

This important and compassionate new book from the creator of the successful God Allows U-Turns series will help parents and grandparents of the many adult children who continue to make life painful for their loved ones.

A tough-love book to help readers cope with dysfunctional adult children, Setting Boundaries with Your Adult Children will empower families by offering hope and healing through S.A.N.I.T.Y.--a six-step program to help parents regain control in their homes and in their lives.

  • N = Nip Excuses in the Bud
  • I = Implement Rules/Boundaries
  • T = Trust Your Instincts
  • Y = Yield Everything to God

Foreword by Carol Kent (When I Lay My Isaac Down)

Editorial Reviews

"If you've experienced the sweet relief of sudden shade after foolishly attempting to cross scorching hot pavement barefoot, expect the same sweet emotional comfort from Bottke's book."
--Marion Bond West, author of Praying for My Life

"Setting Boundaries with Your Adult Children is packed full of practical, useable, workable ideas and is a welcome tool for parents of grown children, and parents in pain. I know many families will be helped, and many parents will feel like their sanity and their life has been given back to them."
--Pam Farrel, bestselling author of Men Are Like Waffles--Women Are Like Spaghetti and The 10 Best Decisions Every Parent Can Make

"Allison Bottke's transparent writing jumped off the pages and into my heart. I didn't feel looked down on or preached to while reading. Instead, I experienced a bond with a woman who has the guts to show us, ‘This is where I've been. This is how crazy it got. We don't have to live this way.' She puts those beautiful life-changing Twelve Steps back inside me where they belong."
--Julie Garmon, freelance writer

"From the opening pages of this book, readers know Allison Bottke understands firsthand the struggle which parents have setting boundaries with their adult children. This book combines the personal stories from Allison with practical hands-on help to escape the insanity and move toward hope and healing. She mixes her own heart-stirring experiences with sage advice from many others. This book is easy to read and yet for some will involve tears. It is a much needed resource that hopefully counselors and many others will read, then recommend to others."
--W. Terry Whalin, author of more than 60 books

    excellent reference for those dealing with addictions to drugs especially. i have given copies of it to many people who have commented on it's positive impact and for me also as I have been dealing with a drug addicted nephew.

    My brother and sister-in-law and niece praise it for having enabled them to get "on the same tract" in managing their enabling issues with their son. They are trying to 'let go and let God " and in my opinion are better for it.

    I am so pleased that I purchased this book. I have read the famous boundaries book by Townsend and Cloud, but wanted tools for setting boundaries with adult children and this fulfilled my desire. I also sent a copy to my sister.

    My husband and I have benefited greatly from this book and have given away several copies to others grappling with similar challenges. The suggestions for dealing with adult children struggling with various addictions and growing up in general were very helpful. It provided a framework for us to set limits with our oldest son. He chose not to comply and we asked him to move out. It was the hardest thing I've ever done as a parent. About six months later he acknowledged that he needed that push to help him to get his life in order. A little over a year since we asked him to move out, he's still taking baby steps in the right direction and our relationship has been restored. Praise God!
