"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

waynewlls5 Stars Out Of 5Informative Book on Tough ParentingMarch 24, 2016waynewllsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm a single male parent. I thought I was trying to make up for all of the things that our son may have/would have received if my former wife and I remained married. Although, our son did not become involved in drugs or alcohol addiction, it was rampant in the family. I still raised him in a way that I enabled him in many choices. To me it's kind of weird, he is currently in his second year of graduate school for Clinical Psychology, specializing in children and adolescents. Yet, he has/does mimic the same qualities as described in this book. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book because it has helped me to become a more Christ-centered parent. It has shown me that my parenting is still not done, even though he is twenty-three (23) years old. Thank you for sharing your struggles with me and the world!

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.
