- How do you know if you’ve done a great job at parenting, home training, and/or raising your adult children?
- What yardsticks do you use to measure their success?
- Is’t by your adult children having successfully completed high school, college, professional studies, or being married?
- If they’re not married, does being unmarried equate unsuccessful?
- And if they are married, does being happily married or otherwise, with or without children, count as success?
- Are you culpable for the choices that your adult children make after the age of 18 (or 21 in some countries) which coincidentally are the years that they are in college and, technically, you have no control over them – what they do, whether or not they’re going to class, or are busy partying away, or the friends (or relationships) they choose to cultivate?
As a parent of two young adults, these, and many more, questions run amok in my head most days. One of my adult children once said, “Mom, you never tell us these things.” Referring to not sharing enough of our culture with them. Which brings me to the next question:
- How do you know what to share and when to share?
- Is it possible to share everything that you know with your children or adult children?
Let’s talk. Let’s dialogue.
