About This Class

You may be surprised to learn that almost half (46.5%) of young adults 18-24 years old live with their parents. Are you one of those parents? Are you wondering when do our children really become adults? 18? 21? When they clear their stuff out of our basement? Is 30 the new 21? 

Even if your kids aren’t consistently living with you, you may wonder what this evolving relationship should look like. Do we need to “let go” or silence ourselves now? How do we stay connected and adjust expectations as our children mature? 

If you are living with your young adult child, it can be a meaningful last opportunity to see your child grow or a headache with no end in sight.

After this class, you will be able to:

  • Define adulthood according to meaningful standards
  • Develop a plan to handle money with your adult child
  • Recognize the importance of relationship essentials with your adult child
  • Develop a contract for living together if needed
  • Apply positive communication with your adult child
