We all want to raise responsible and self-confident children ready to take on the world and fulfill their dreams. But, signs are everywhere that young adults are struggling after they leave home, while parents are grappling with the practical and emotional demands of letting go and preparing them for independence. Because of this, and the training deficit evidenced in today’s young adults, we wrote Wings Not Strings: Parenting Strategies to Let Go with Confidence.
Wings Not Strings surveys today's young adult landscape and reveals how contemporary parenting styles and other factors are contributing to the lack of adult readiness evident in today’s adolescents. It then offers empowering parenting solutions that build the leadership and life skills children need to flourish—giving them wings, not strings.
Wings Not Strings is also filled with encouragement and practical strategies to help parents let go and move over to the passenger seat in their teen’s life. It addresses the emotions, fears, and pressures parents are facing, equips them to let go naturally and confidently, and positions their family for a thriving adult-to-adult relationship.
