How to Let Go of Your Adult Children and Restore Your Sanity

Letting go of your adult children is one of the hardest things that you will ever have to do. After all, you don’t stop being a parent just because your kids turn 18.

At the same time, there is no denying the fact that many of us have complicated relationships with our adult kids. Some of us are still supporting our kids, financially. Others may have even been prevented from seeing our grandkids because of conflicts with their parents.

So, today, I want to talk about how to let go of your adult children, emotionally, so that you can get more from life.

Check out our own “Aging Beautifully” affirmation cards for inspiration about family, relationships and life.

How would you describe your relationship with your adult children? Do you sometimes feel like you give too much?
