Format: Paperback
As a parent of an adult child I found this book to be an outstanding resource for families dealing with the realities of changing times. The concept of twentysomethings as ADULTescents is well defined and clearly developed by the authors. Using a combination of anecdotes, interviews with focus groups, and summaries of research, the book provides background information and practical strategies for parents facing the challenges of interacting with twentysomethings in a positive and constructive way. As an educator, I also appreciated the attention to the social issues and changing expectations facing young adults, particularly those related to gender roles.

If you have kids in their 20's or even older this book will both educate and absorb you totally. For any parent who finds themselves much more involved in their adult child's daily life than they could ever imagine, this book tells you that you're not alone! The numerous anecdotes sound like the authors must have eavesdropped at my home for the past few years. The book entertains and at the same time feels like it is well researhed and really thoughtful. Baby boomer parents of "adult" children should run to buy it.

This book was reviewed a bit on Nat. Pub. Radio, and it's been very helpful to me in providing material for helping a patient in my dialysis social work position. Looking forward to the authors' new edition they are reportedly workintg on! This is for all parents of "twentysomethings" and "thirtysomethings", extremely informative about the world these young adults face in today's culture in No. America and how their parents can help them mature and handle their lives instead of enabling them to remain immature and dependent, in fact, contributing to their failure to grow up: authors also provide new markers of adulthood and maturity as a guide. A MUST READ for all baby boomer parents like me!

My daughter is a heroin addict. She went to rehab and wanted to move back in with me. BIG mistake. Don't let your adult children move back in. It creates tension and enables them to act like kids.
