As we raise our children we imagine a certain life for them.  We see their strengths and weaknesses and begin to form ideas about who they will be “when they grow up.” We have hopes and dreams as well as fears and concerns. Each child’s unique personality, the challenges or lack thereof that they have encountered thus far in their young lives, plays a role in how they enter young adulthood. Similarly, how we feel about them becoming adults - how we communicate or hide our feelings from them — plays a large role in the adults they will become.

These things, as well as others, form the backdrop, and sometimes the trampoline, from which our children will launch - or not. Just as there is no one “right” way for a child to be, there is no one “right” way for a parent to feel and every person experiences this developmental stage in different ways.

Every parent that I’ve worked with has a unique story, every young adult has an individual personality and it’s the combination of these and other factors that affect how we feel about, and communicate with, our children when they leave home (or don’t) during late adolescence.

In this 9 session discussion group, which meets once monthly for two hours each, I’ll discuss basic developmental norms that are common for most children in the 18 - 25+ year old age group, whether they’ve “launched” or not.

I’ll talk about the common mistakes that we make with children who are living at home, at college, or independently that can interfere with their ability to become resilient, resourceful, independent adults AND I’ll discuss tried and true solutions, based in learnable techniques, to remedy those mistakes.

The goal is to help your child launch into a healthy adulthood.
