From the Back Cover:

As your teenager becomes a 20-something, you may find that your parenting role is changing. As a matter of fact, your child may insist on a change!

Is your 20-something kid hinting that you’re being too protective, overly concerned, or not trusting enough? In other words, are you gently—or not so gently--being invited to butt out? Martha Pope Gorris can help you adapt to your new role. She gives pointers on ways to feel involved, know what’s going on with your 20-something, and maintain the connection that is important to you—and to your child. You’ll learn to: · Relate in ways that do not include giving unwanted advice · Love your adult child with no strings attached · Survive your adult child’s poor decisions with your relationship intact · Say no without guilt · Establish new lines of communication · Celebrate your new friendship with your adult child

You’ll always be Mom or Dad. The key is to learn to navigate these new waters now that your child is on the way to independence.
