Are you the parent of an adult son or daughter who would like to have a much better relationship with them?

Are you fed up giving away your time, energy and money, and want to be able to say no without feeling guilty?

Do you want to encourage them to be more independent whilst still maintaining a close and supportive relationship?

Here's What Parents Tell Me:

  • I feel so bad that their other parent hasn't been around, so I end up overcompensating.
  • I try to set boundaries but they don't respect them.
  • We just can't seem to communicate. They just don't listen and we end up rowing all the time.
  • I feel responsible for past traumas and arguments between myself and my partner, so now I try to smooth things over all the time. 
  • Its just become a habit over the years to give in, and to give them what they want.
  • Its a cycle. We have a big blow-up, then things are calm for a while. Then the arguments begin again.
  • I feel guilty about not having the time to give them attention when they were growing up, so I feel I have to make up for it now.
  • My partner has a different approach, and I always end up being painted as the bad cop.
  • They just seem to expect so much. It's different from when I was their age.
