The purpose of this blog is to share my thoughts, opinions and experiences as a parent of adults with others. I have found that parenting does not end when our children move out, and from my own experiences and talking to so many others in the same situation, it seems that too often parents have expectations of their children that are not always met. This can lead to stress, guilt and sometimes disappointment. The theme of my blog is that there is no formula to parenting, no way to guarantee that our children will do what we expect them to do. Instead of stressing about it, however, I have learned, as many others have, that is is better to embrace the choices our children have made, even if they differ from the ones we would want for them.
