We have been told by secular experts that our parental role ends when our children are in their late teens or early 20s, and for the most part we accept it as true. How wrong can they be? Kids grow up, but they never stop being your children. And in this ever-changing time, families need each other more than ever.

The issues facing adult children could be:

  • Financial problems
    Are good times supposed to last forever?
  • Marriage deterioration
    Who will adult children turn to for security, stability and acceptance in the chaos of a turbulent, broken relationship?
  • Career stress
    Who will your adult children turn to for life transition advice?
  • And many others…

Once a Parent Always a Parent’ shows how you can be concerned about your adult children in a nice and healthy way – without driving each other up the wall. It offers sound advice such as developing a communication routine with your adult children and being careful about keeping it. Each child is unique. Adopt the routine that best fits the individual needs of each child. Assume it as much your responsibility as it is theirs to keep the friendship growing with your adult children.

May this book bring you insights, and may the Lord bless you in your parenting journey.
