Secrets to Parenting Your Adult Child: A Book Review

About The Book:

You can create a strong, healthy relationship with your grown child 

You're still a parent, no matter how old your child is. Roles change, but your love and your sense of responsibility remain. Maybe he hasn't left the nest as quickly as you expected, or she needs career and financial guidance, or he's bringing new members into your family. Whatever the situation, how can you help your adult child without crossing appropriate boundaries?

Licensed counselor and life coach Nancy Williams draws from her own professional and personal experience, and also provides insights from young adults. She will help you navigate these transitions with love, respect, and grace. While every family is unique, this book provides practical tools you can use to help your changing family become the best it's ever been.

About The Author:

Nancy Williams, MEd, LPC, is a licensed professional counselor and trained life coach. She speaks frequently in both professional and church contexts and is a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors. Nancy and her husband live Near Austin, TX, and are the parents of two adult children.

My Review:

Written in a very conversational manner, parents of adult children will learn so much reading this book. It is very well written and organized as well.

Topics  include setting healthy boundaries, how to make room for additions to the family tree (marriage and grandchildren), how to handle disappoint, how to support adult children through challenging times, and so much more. As this book is written, you will be reminded that parenting does not end when our children turn 18 or get married, but our parenting moves to a new stage of the journey. This stage brings so much, and it can encompass so many emotions. Nancy Williams takes you through this journey with  many wonderful tips, scriptural references, and Lord willing, I will one day be a parent to an adult child and use many of the tips and ideas in Secrets to Parenting Your Adult Child. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
