Product Description

Parenting doesn't end when your child hits 21. It just moves into a new phase.

The role of a parent lasts a lifetime. Your kids will always be in your life. The trick is figuring out how to adapt to the new phases in that parent-child relationship. No question, it can be tricky. And if you fail to navigate that transition well, the result will be stress, alienation, and maybe a broken relationship.

But it doesn't have to be that way. In How to Really Love Your Adult Child, Dr. Gary Chapman—author of the worldwide bestseller The 5 Love Languages®—teams up with clinical psychiatrist Dr. Ross Campbell to provide the insights you need when your child moves into young adulthood. You'll find help for those moments when:

  • Your adult child isn't succeeding
  • Your nest isn't emptying
  • Your child moves back home
  • You have conflict over lifestyle issues
  • You become an in-law or grandparent
  • And much more . . .

The book includes brief sidebars from parents of adult children, as well stories from adult children who relate what works best for them. An online study guide is also available.

Stop wondering how to connect with your adult child. Instead, learn to love them in the ways they so desperately want. Because while childhood is temporary, parenting is forever.
