WHEN WILL MY GROWN-UP KID GROW UP?
Loving and Understanding Your Emerging Adult

By Jeffrey Jensen Arnett and Elizabeth Fishel
Published by Workman Publishing

It's the parenting guide for parents who thought they no longer needed one—for parents who worry as their 20-something kids struggle to grow up; who are saving for retirement but now have to reopen the bank of Mom and Dad; who look forward to downsizing but have a boomerang child living at home again.

When Will My Grown-Up Kid Grow Up? covers every aspect of life for an 18- to 29-year-old, from that first taste of independence at college to that time at the end of the 20s, when the majority of kids are settling down. It explains what grown children are going through—intense self-focus, instability, a feeling of being "in-between" mixed with a breathtaking sense of possibilities—and how parents should deal with these changes, from six ways to listen more than you talk, to money 101 (and why never to use money to control your child's life), to troubleshooting their failure to launch, to, finally, the dos and don'ts of promoting a successful transition to adulthood.
