Michele Howe- Empty Nest: What’s Next?: Parenting Adult Children Without Losing Your Mind

This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Michele Howe. The original live interview was 9/18/15.

Unlike the first eighteen years of parenting, moms and dads now take on more of an advisory role and step out of the daily hands-on instructional role. In theory, this stepping to the sidelines parenting style should lead to a simpler, less stress-free life for the parents. However, real-life parenting young adults is often much more challenging than all the earlier years put together. Combine young adult immaturity with a dangerous world, and parents frequently find themselves beset with worry, fear, and anxiety. Intellectually letting go is one thing; emotionally letting go is much more difficult, especially when the consequences are adult sized. This resource will offer parents true stories of other moms and dads who are facing the very same challenges.

Michele Howe is a reviewer for Publishers Weekly, FaithfulReader.com, Retailers + Resources, Foreword Magazine, TeenReads.com, KidReads.com, among many others national and international publications. Her work has been published in MORE, FIRST for Women, Good Housekeeping.

The purpose of “Empty Nest, What’s Next?” is to help parents adjust to their changing roles as parents of adult children. Parents will discover a biblical model of faith-inspiring exercises that enable them to not simply cope with the demands of parenting their young adult children, but also to find peace, freedom, and joy in the process. “Empty Nest, What’s Next? “will offer encouragement, practical suggestions, and lots of comical asides to the always-evolving role of parenting.
