Raging Gracefully: Parenting Your 'Adult' Kids

A Conversation with Jane Isay

Parenting 'kids" in their 20s and 30s is not the easy breeze we imagined it might be.

Are you feeling consumed by worry about your adult children? Having trouble figuring our boundaries? Not sure why you're still financially supporting them, or wondering if you should be? Feeling tension with your daughter-in-law? Painfully ambivalent about the holidays? Feeling torn up with guilt or regret about their childhoods? Worried you might sometimes not like who your children have become? Parenting 'kids" in their 20s and 30s is not the easy breeze we imagined it might be, but you've come to the right place for help!

Join Nina Collins for an interview with the legendary writer/editor Jane Isay, whose first book, Walking on Eggshells: Navigating the Delicate Relationship Between Adult Children and Parents is full of wisdom, advice and decades of expertise. She wrote the book when her kids were in her 20s, and now they are in their 40s and 50s and she's both an incredible resource and a pleasure to listen to.
