Neverending Parenting

  • Neverending Parenting

Product Description

Are parents eternally committed to love their children, no matter what they do? Are they committed to pay for education throughout the child's life? Should they pay for their children's follies in choosing a mate, choosing the wrong job or career, and bear responsibilities for the vagaries of the market-place?
When one's children are consistently in debt, choosing the wrong mate, or without gainful employment, the choices that must be made concerning if and how to help are complex. When does the pattern of always giving end?
The rules of the game change when parenting adult children. Neverending parenting now means providing conditional love, rather than the unconditional love given to a child. There is a need for boundaries and obligations appropriate for the adult child.
Designed to help parents distinguish between giving as a neverending parent and giving as a neverending sacrifice, the psychology presented in the book and the discussions deal with issues of belief, faith, and skepticism, as well as with more pragmatic matters.
