All Grown Up by Celia Dodd
What makes parents happiest, according to influential new research, is good relationships with their adult children. This book is one of the first to offer much-needed guidance on developing a strong and enduring bond with children in the decades after they’ve left home.
It’s a crucial slice of family life which hopefully lasts much longer than the twenty or so years it takes to raise a child. Yet surprisingly it’s rarely discussed. So it’s a shock for parents who assumed their job was done to discover that when a child leaves home (or boomerangs back again), it’s actually the beginning of a whole new chapter.
Full of practical advice and wisdom, and featuring interviews with experts, specialists, parents and their offspring, this is the must read handbook for anyone with adult children.
