Many books teach you how to handle your children after they graduate from diapers, but none tells you how to proceed once they graduate from high school. As new patterns emerge in the lives of young adults, parents find that their grown children have bigger problems. Comedy writer Gail Parent and noted psychotherapist Susan Ende combine their wit and expertise to give advice with an edge, answering questions relating to money, the college years, living arrangements, work, dating, family rituals, marriage, in-laws, grandchildren, divorce, and aging and illness. This book answers questions most parents never imagined they would have to ask. The authors' overriding theme, that adult children are separate from parents, who must respect their right to make their own choices in order to foster independence, rings true.--From publisher description.
