I received this through the Librarything Early Reviewer program. I appreciate the author's view that our goal as Christian parents is to raise our children to be what God would have them to be. There is a lot of good information in this book. It is somewhat repetitive, but has some helpful suggestions and examples of parenting techniques for adult children.

i received this book as an early reviewer from author nancy williams. one of the first things that struck me is the statement, "successful parenting means you have helped your children become the persons God wants them to be". to me this is the utmost goal of a Christian parent. yes it is nice if your child is handsome or rich or owns their own business but what good is all that if they have no relationship with the God who created them? in order to accomplish this goal there must be some key ingredients such as communication, trust, honesty, openness and prayer. prayer is perhaps more important than any of the others. the author starts right at the beginning with talking about what to expect from being a parent. she talks to her readers in a coaching mentoring style which makes it really easy to take in the information she feeds you even when it is a tough subject or something you don't agree with. she covers all stages and situations that a parent with an adult child might find themselves in including a section of parents of handicap and military children. there is a section also on grandparenting and how to become more involved in the lives of your grandchildren. there are Biblical verses throughout the book that are a real help in that they are something to hold on to. in my oppinion this is an easy book to read full of wisdom and advice. definetly a must have for your library or anyone getting to go through the "empty nest" syndrome.

I often wonder about these type of books, if they really have any "new" information to add. Reading this book finally caused an answer to come together for me. We may (or may not) have already learned or figured out all the information in it, but having it all in one concise location really does help to focus a person on the information inside.

I received this book at a great time. My oldest was in the somewhat lengthy process of 'flying the coop.' I wanted to do right by my not-so-little-one and this book reassured me in areas and gave me gentle reminders in others. I really appreciated the Christian undercurrent. While the book is immensely practical, it never fails to remind the reader to keep the child and our relationship with him or her in prayer. I also appreciated that it was not a one-size-fits-all book. The author repeatedly makes reference to the individuality of our young adults and emphasizes that along with their unique strengths and weaknesses, they will need different things from us.

I think this book is a great resource. Think of it as a Dr. Spock for the young adult years. ( )

Although published through Bethany House, this is not a Christian book. It lacks Biblical reference or defining terms in a Biblical way. ( )

As the parent on an adult son, I found this book to be very helpful. There have been times in the past when my son was in his late teens and early twenties, that I would have truly loved to have had the insight that Ms. Williams offers to parents of adult children. Definitely a keeper to be used time and again....... ( )
