Greetings Fellow Parents of 20-somethings


Welcome to the trickiest stage of parenting

If you’re the parent of a newly minted adult,  you may be standing nervously on the sidelines, anxious about how they’ll figure all this stuff out. You probably remember what it was like to be standing in their shoes.

Believe it or not, recounting tales of your own experiences as a young adult may help. Humans are wired to learn through stories, so sharing your hard-won wisdom may help.

I know sometimes it can be hard to be candid, especially when you're worried that they're not inclined to listen to their own mom or dad. If you think they might be more receptive to hearing wisdom from somebody else, my free weekly newsletter, Things Your Mom Should Have Told You, might hit the spot.
