Over the last several decades, one of the most confusing changes in American society has been the shifting dynamic of the family unit. Once expected to leave home and marry as soon as they'd finished school, children today live at home longer, move back home with their parents after school, get married later, and start families later. It is now becoming commonplace for 25 to 35 year olds to still be living with their parents, and this shift in familial mores has precipitated problems and conflicts. Many of these conflicts simply stem from the conflict between the roles of the child and the adult.
Stop Treating Me Like a Child addresses many issues and proposes concrete, sensitive remedies: new visions, new roles, new expectations of one another. With humor, insight, and many personal anecdotes bound to elicit nods of recognition, the authors walk us through the minefield of parent / adult children relationships towards a greater wisdom and togetherness.
