This new book will help you to encourage self-reliance in your nearly grown children and prepare them for independence in the real world. It also shows how you can prepare for a time when your childs excitement at the prospect of leaving school, going to college, or just living on their own leaves you feeling passed over and obsessed by details they see as unimportant.

It discusses how you can start to think about what to do with the rest of your life—picking up on ambitions, both personal and professional, and prioritizing your own friends and interests. It also offers advice on the increasingly common situation of children deciding to return home to live. It addresses such issues as boomerang kids, sofa syndrome and how to motivate, money management for a generation disinclined to save, the hotel of mom and dad, and much more. Packed with strategies, exercises, and Q&A sections, Later!

is user-friendly and entirely practical. It considers the hopes and plans of parents and children alike and, in the process, demonstrates how to move on while sustaining a supportive, happy relationship.
