Once a parent, always a parent.
Many young couples don't believe that. After all, kids are supposed to grow up, marry and leave home. Then come the golden years of grandchildren, freedom, and the means to enjoy both, right?
Not always. Though many children do progress smoothly through their transition years, many do not. And in neither case does parenting really come to an end. The issues simply grow more complex, and the amount of authority you can wield as a parent steadily decreases with time.
In When Your Kids Aren't Kids Anymore, the Whites present clear and practical guidelines for helping young adults through their transition years. By diving that period into two distinct phases (ages 16-22 and 22-30+), they give special attention to the characteristic joys and frustrations of each stage and clearly illustrate proven methods for:
Communicating with young adults
Moving late-teens toward independence
Teaching decision-making skills
Guiding young adults in career preparation
Handling adult children living at home
Facing difficult times
Healing wounds of the past
