Armed with the twin swords of guilt and anxiety, many baby boomers are marching toward retirement to a tune unlike any their own parents heard a generation ago. Just when they expected peace of mind and an empty nest, far too many boomers are discovering a different reality: - Adult children living at home without contributing to the household- Repeated requests for money that's often not repaid- Relationship strains that have left them bewilderedTo help parents save themselves from distress and spur their adult children to get on-track, Herman offers practical strategies and poignant insights. Throughout "Parents to the End," she recognizes the delicate balance parents must strike between giving appropriate help to their adult children and just enabling them, while also taking into account individual differences and needs.

Reviews

""Being the mother or father of an adult problem child can be excruciating. With no clear guidelines for how to operate, guilt, anger and confusion rule the day. As a caring parent, what are you supposed to think and what are you supposed to do with these 'kids'? Linda clearly answers both questions in ways that go a long way toward establishing parental peace of mind. The advice here is priceless." --Thomas W. Phelan, PhD, author, " 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12
