Review of Secrets to Parenting Your Adult Child by Nancy Williams

Parenting doesn't stop when the children grow up, and the nest doesn't always empty when or how parents thought it would. The role changes, but the sense of responsibility continues. Licensed counselor and life coach Nancy Williams draws from professional and personal experience, and also brings in the perspectives of young adults to guide readers in building healthy relationships with adult children. Her insight, encouragement, and advice will help readers navigate everything from prolonged adolescence and boundary struggles to disappointing choices our children make.

My Review
If you are a parent of an adult child this is a must read!! I know what you are thinking another self-help book for parents, well this is a super read for your newest parenting challenge it gives you tons of information to help you  deal with that challenge. I got this book just as I was dealing with a challenge, and it really was a huge help. Nancy gives you verses from God's word to help serve as a guide and for encouragement.
