Overview

I'm Still Your Mother is a wise, witty, guide to creating authentic, intimate relationships between the generations.

Is there life with your kids once you've raised them? In this groundbreaking book, a best-selling author and psychologist (and the mother of grown children, too) shows you how to keep your family together for a lifetime. Dr. Spock didn't tell you about post parenthood, but Jane Adams does-in this wise, warm, witty, common sense guide to creating a close, loving relationship with your grown children.

You raised your kids to be independent, strong, and think for themselves. So once they're grown, why is it so hard to let them do it? Jane Adams interviewed over a hundred mothers and fathers of young adults to learn how they've created closer, more authentic relationships with their kids than they had with their own parents. She offers practical wisdom about how to keep families together even when distance tugs at the ties that bind. Sensible tips on holding them close to your hearts while getting them out of your house. Good advice about helping them start their careers. And first-hand strategies on getting along with their mates, giving or lending them money, offering or asking advice, being a great grandparent, coming to terms with their lifestyles, and preparing both generations for the future.

"Finally, some wisdom from a group that has taken it on the chin: Fiftysomethings whose kids now eagerly blame all their problems on their parents…This book is wise, warm, and right on the money!"
