Parents to the End: How Baby Boomers Can Parent for Peace of Mind, Foster Responsibility in their Adult Children, and Keep their Hard-Earned Money

At a time when Baby Boomers expect to be enjoying their child-free years, a growing number feel anything but free. Instead of 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 bewildered
Add to this the impact of a stuttering economy that has sent previously independent adult kids back home to postpone or redefine goals, and you have a generation of parents in uncharted territory.

Linda gives parents direction in her new book, Parents to the End: How Baby Boomers Can Parent for Peace of Mind, Foster Responsibility in Their Adult Children and Keep Their Hard-Earned Money. Parents to the End combines the results of her research, including fifty interviews, with historical, clinical, and social observation to reveal why these trends are happening and what parents can do about them.

To help parents save themselves from distress and spur their adult children to get on-track, Herman offers practical strategies and poignant insight. 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.

Parents to the End includes:

• Real Stories, Real Problems, and Real Solutions

• A Bill of Rights for Parents of Adult Children

• Twelve Truths to give parents clarity for this stage of parenting

• Questionnaires and Worksheets that help parents define their parenting style, get perspective when an adult child’s behavior is problematic, and develop personal coping skills

• A template to create short- and long-term plans with their Adult Children
