Synopses & Reviews
Parenting doesn't end at 18.Has your nest not emptied? Has your adult child made lifestyle choices you don't agree with? Has becoming an in-law made you consider becoming an outlaw? Many parents today answer an exasperating 'yes' to these and many other questions that describe the frustration encountered between them and their adult children. Parenting no longer ends at 18, yet very few resources are available to help parents better communicate with their child who is no longer a child.Ross Campbell and Gary Chapman, authors of The Five Love Languages of Children, have teamed up again to bring us another tool for parenting. They will help you deal with such issues as: - Helping Your Child Find Success - Dealing with the Anger - When Adult Children Return with their Children - Religious Choices - Positive Parental LoveYou can survive this stage in your life. And with the excellent advice from Drs. Campbell and Chapman you can even enjoy it.
Few resources are available to help parents communicate with their child who is no longer a child. Here is a tool that will help you deal with such issues as: helping your child find success, when adult chil d ren return with their children, and more.
<P>More than 10 years after <EM>Parenting Your Adult Child</EM> was published, much has changed - including young adults themselves, as well as their parents. Economic upheavals, challenges to traditional values and beliefs, the phenomenon of over-involved "helicopter parenting" - all make relating to grown children more difficult than ever. Yet at the same time, being a parent of an adult child can bring great rewards. This revised and updated version of Dr. Gary Chapman's and Dr. Ross Campbell's message will help today's parents explore how to really love their adult child in today's changing world. The book includes brief sidebars from parents of adult children and adult children themselves with their own stories. An online study guide will also be available.</P>
