All Grown Up: Living Happily Ever After with Your Adult Children


All Grown Up: Living Happily Ever After with Your Adult Children Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many parents in their 50s and 60s don't know how to parent their adult children. Yet increases in health and longevity mean that parents and their children may share 40 or more years together as adults. All Grown Updescribes how mid-life parents and their grown children can celebrate this new lease on life together by developing loving and egalitarian friendships that are positive and guilt-free. Using conflict resolution strategies borrowed from the field of mediation, a healthy respect for generation-gap issues engendered by the social revolutions of the 1960s and '70s, and a broad spiritual perspective, the author provides both practical solutions to on-going problems, as well as thought-provoking discussions of how these problems came to be.

Unlike other books in the field, All Grown Upaddresses the cultural changes of the late 20thcentury which deeply affect how we approach parenting, self-development and lifestyle issues. The book provides guidance on how parents of adult children can:

communicate with their adult children without judgments, or fear of giving praise;

let go - and share activities in a stress-free, equal way;

deal with crises in their adult children's lives, knowing when and when notto give advice;

set boundaries, limits and deadlines;

avoid over-identification with their child's successes and failures, and avoid competitiveness; and

build understanding, trust and compassion without prying.

Wise, compassionate and helpful, All Grown Upwill appeal to all mid-life and older parents and children, as well as mediators, therapists, and counselors.
