You raised your children to be independent and strong and to think for themselves. Now that they're grown, why is it so hard to let them do it?
Dr. Spock didn't tell you about postparenthood, but Jane Adams does - in this warm, witty, commonsense guide to creating a close, loving, healthy relationship with your grown children.
Today's postparents want a closer, more authentic relationship with their grown children than they had with their own parents. Based on interviews with more than a hundred parents of eighteen- to thirty-four-year-olds, this book provides: Practical wisdom about how to keep families together even when distance tugs at the ties that bind. Sensible tips on holding young adults close to your hearts while getting them out of your house. Good advice about helping them start their careers, getting along with their mates, giving or lending them money, offering or asking for advice, coming to terms with their lifestyles, and preparing them for the future.
Is there life with your kids after you've raised them? In this groundbreaking book, a best-selling author and journalist, the mother of grown children herself, answers a resounding, rejoicing "Yes!" and shows you how to keep your family together for a lifetime.
