Parenting doesn’t stop when the children grow up, and the nest doesn’t always empty when or how parents thought it would. The role changes, but the sense of responsibility continues. Whether you are adjusting to an empty nest, welcoming boomerang kids back home, or learning how to navigate the changing and challenging relationships with your adult children, you’ll want to read this book.
As a licensed counselor and life coach, Nancy draws from professional and personal experience, and also brings in the perspectives of young adults to guide readers in building healthy relationships with adult children.
Her insight, encouragement, and advice will help readers navigate everything from prolonged adolescence and boundary struggles to disappointing choices their children make and empty nest challenges.
