My Kids Are All Grown Up, So Why Are they Still Driving Me Crazy? How To Get Along With Your Adult Children, Their Spouses and Other Aliens By Bea Lewis with Marilyn Murray Willison If you have adult children (i.e., if your kids are grownups), your parenting skills may need a refresher course. - Do your adult kids think you live in the Stone Age? - Do they ignore any advice you give them? - Do your adult children still battle over which sibling is mom or dad's favorite? - Do your grown kids see you as their personal ATM machine? - Does your daughter-in-law treat you like a second class citizen? - Do you feel left out when your son or daughter spends more time with the in-laws? If you have answered "yes'' to any of the above questions, you desperately need this guide. "My Kids Are All Grown Up, So Why Are They Still Driving Me Crazy?"was written to help you to be a happy and harmonious parent to your adult children during what some experts now call the second-stage parenting phase. (And because we're living longer, this phase is far longer than when we were parents to little kids ) Using real-life scenarios - coupled with advice and opinions from a variety of experts - each chapter focuses on one of today's complicated intergenerational issues such as "adult sibling rivalry, '' "money and inheritance'' (i.e., when giving money to an adult child is more harmful than helpful). One chapter explains the underlying causes for the "mother-in-law/daughter-in-law conflicts'' with tips for resolution. Other chapters offer suggestions for "dealing with grandkids in mixed-marriages, '' "adult kids who return to the nest, '' "coping with your child's divorce, '' and "how to appreciate your gay or lesbian child.'' More than anything else, this humorous and heartfelt book helps readers learn how to accept their adult children - not as they wish they would be - but as they are.
