Parenting Your Adult Child: Keeping the Faith (and Your Sanity) | [Susan V. Vogt]

Parenting Your Adult Child: Keeping the Faith (and Your Sanity)

It's eighteen years after the birth of your child. He is now stronger than you. She is now taller than you. Either one of them can work a cell phone faster, text message, IM, or design a web page while you're still reading the newspaper. How did your baby grow up so quickly? As a parent, do you have anything left to say to your son or daughter? Is there anything your child still needs to hear from you - or will tolerate you saying?

Publisher's Summary

It's eighteen years after the birth of your child. He is now stronger than you. She is now taller than you. Either one of them can work a cell phone faster, text message, IM, or design a web page while you're still reading the newspaper. How did your baby grow up so quickly? As a parent, do you have anything left to say to your son or daughter? Is there anything your child still needs to hear from you - or will tolerate you saying?

Parenting Your Adult Child addresses such thorny issues as: when to rescue and when not; when to push and when to restrain yourself; how to keep your faith when your child seems to be abandoning it; how to forgive yourself for the mistakes you made in parenting along the way; and how to move into an adult-adult relationship with this amazing person you have raised.

    "Not what I expected!"

    Very religious book! Not what I expected at all.... I think you should update the description of the book to be more accurate.

    "Not what I expected either!"

    This book is written by a lay administrator in the Catholic Church. The book seems to focus exclusively on when your adult child strays from the faith of the parents. At least the first third of it does. I stopped reading when I realized it wasn't about what the review claims it's about.

    What would have made Parenting Your Adult Child better?

    this book is more about the issues that we already know we are having with our children and praying about them


    What was most disappointing about Susan V. Vogt’s story?

    there is nothing in the discription of this book stating it is a religious book. I didn't need all the bible quotes or being told to pray on it.
