Many parents have the fear of rejection, losing contact with grandchildren, and even physical abuse should they not succumb to the demands of adult children who will not strive to be independent.
Fresno, CA (PRWEB) January 28, 2009
SurvivingAdultChildren.com is a website and discussion board devoted to all the aspects of raising, training, supporting, enduring, and surviving adult children. The present situation is so serious that many adult children have become a heavy financial drain on their parents, using up valuable savings, retirement funds, and home equity. According to Dennis Shelley, Administrator, "Many parents have the fear of rejection, losing contact with grandchildren, and even physical abuse should they not succumb to the demands of adult children who will not strive to be independent."
Fifty years ago, children began assuming adult roles right out of high school. Twenty-five years ago, more seemed to "grow up" following a few years of college. Today, more and more young adults are living longer with their parents, and many are coming back home, some with families, after failing to make it on their own.
Some parents actually want their children to always be with and dependent on them. And some can't wait for the day when they leave. Many that leave still remain a heavy financial and emotional burden on their parents. Regardless of how anyone feels, all opinions are welcome on this discussion board. Maybe they'll learn something...then, again, they may be able to teach others from their own experience.
SurvivingAdultChildren.com recognizes that some of the most practical advice comes from the "real" experts...those who have been through, or are currently struggling with, the challenges of both loving and helping their adult children to become as happy, successful, and independent as they can possibly be.
