There are many books out there to teach you how to handle your children after they graduate from diapers, but none tell 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 than they did just a few years ago.

How to Raise Your Adult Children is a manual for anxious moms and dads. Whether confronting the question of setting a curfew for a college kid at home or paying for a forty-year-old daughter’s wedding, two “been there, done that” moms give advice with an edge on a variety of emotionally and financially perilous situations, including

  • your kid needs money—your money;
  • your kid moves back home and stays home;
  • you know your child should not marry his or her significant other; and
  • your big children keep dumping their little children on you.

Combining the wit of Emmy Award–winning writer Gail Parent and the insight of psychotherapist Susan Ende, this book answers questions most parents never imagined they would have to ask.
