The Hands-On Guide to Surviving
Adult Children Living at Home
If you're faced with the
frustration of dealing with adult children moving home -- or kids who
never left it-- even though they are in their late 20s, 30s, or even
40s, you need to know you're not alone.
Many move home with their children and significant others.
The truth is nearly 25 million adult children are living with their
parents in the U.S. alone. A recent Canadian census showed that, of kids
aged 20 to 29, 44% live with their parents!
While it's nice to think that families with adult children living with
parents can always get along like they do on TV, the fact is that having
adult children return home -- also called boomerang kids -- can put a
ton of stress on you and your partner.

As a bipolar mother I will never have custody of my children. That
is the hardest thing I had to accept. Parenting at a Distance helps me
send them activities that will help them remember me with some happy
memories. I am getting better and they are getting older. Some day there
will be an opportunity for us to sit together. I will tell them how much
joy I found in putting together their projects and I hope they will be
able to tell me how much they enjoyed my efforts. Really a good book.
Meghan Morris --Letter to the publisher
Parenting at a Distance, has been a great resource for me. At first the
mother of my son didn't want to help me communicate with the kids. The
fact that I had a plan for contact with them and was consistent won her
over. I think she gets as much a kick out of the seeing what will be in
the next package as the boys do. Ken Richards --Weekend Fathers

AA Comprehensive Guide to Asserting Your Parental Rights.
Are you at risk of having your children removed by the state? Do you homeschool
your children? Do you spank your children? Are you religious? Are you divorced?
Are you a stepparent? Do you expect your children to be responsible for
their actions? Do you expect your children to obey you? to do chores? Do
you breastfeed your baby? Do your children attend public school? Do you
teach your children the Constitution and the Bible?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are at risk
of having the agents of the state take custody of your children.
Do you know how to prevent that from happening? Do you know how
to protect your family from the destructive influence of the
"child savers?" If you are falsely accused of child abuse, do
you know how to fight the charges and win? Do you know the
consequences of accepting a plea bargain are more expensive than
fighting the charges? Do you know if you accept a plea bargain,
you can never own a gun?
Assemblies of God Marriage Encounter
Episcopal Marriage Encounter
Roman Catholic Marriage
Marriage Encounter, is a weekend away from home, family
and responsibilities where in a comfortable, secluded environment a couple
is guided in the discovery of new techniques of communicating and sharing
with one another. It is not a retreat, but it is a program designed to give
couples the opportunity to examine their lives together, their weaknesses
and strong points, their attitudes toward each other and toward their families.
Couples are given the opportunity to look at themselves, privately with their
partner in an honest, face-to-face, heart-to-heart encounter.
Engaged Encounter, is a weekend experience
designed to help couples prepare personally and as a couple for
marriage. The focus is on the marriage, not on the wedding. "A
wedding is a day ... a marriage is a lifetime." Couples are
shown communication and decision-making techniques they can use
throughout their lifetime together. Engaged Encounter is
specifically designed for quiet reflection and discussion by
each couple. It is a positive, simple, common-sense experience
between two people who are either seriously considering
engagement, engaged or recently married. At no time will the
couple be asked to share their private experiences with the
