If you have an adult child, you know that parenting doesn't stop when
a child reaches the age of eighteen. In many ways, it gets more
complicated. Both your heart and your head are as involved as ever,
whether your child lives under your roof or rarely stays in contact.

professional experience, Burns offers practical answers to questions
such as these:
