I was provided an ebook review copy of this book through Net Galley.
Most books in regard to raising children are aimed at younger children. This book is unique and also very timely for me as it investigates parenting adult children. Every chapter held some gems of wisdom for me. In particular, Chapter 2: When Your Child is Not Succeeding. Conflicts Over Lifestyles Issues, Chapter 6, was another helpful one for me. This book emphasizes love and prayer both of which I utilize to help through these difficult years when our children are adjusting to becoming adults. I really appreciated the legacies we need to leave our children with: a moral legacy, a spiritual legacy, an emotional legacy, and a financial legacy. And of course the reality that all we really want is for a children to have a character to be proud of and to live a life of integrity.
I highly recommend this book for the parents of adult children. You are not alone!!
