Keep Your Mouth Shut and the Welcome Mat Out
Author Jim Burns, president of HomeWord, coaches parents of adult children on how to keep the relational ties open once their young adults leave home. The relationship will change, and it's okay to grieve the loss of the day-to-day relationship, but a more satisfying adult-to-adult relationship should eventually take its place. Burns shares what to do if adult children come back home temporarily, and tells how he's living this out with his own daughter.
