Seeking Wisdom the Truth on Parenting Adult Children Pt.1

As parents, we all want the best for our children, even as they grow into adulthood. However, the transition from parenting young children to parenting adults can be challenging. Controversial even. But listen up! No fear, because todayโ€™s topic is here. Join us as we discuss the art of parenting adult children with Stoic wisdom.

In this thought-provoking and insightful 2 part episode, we delve into the realm of navigating the challenges of the transition from actively raising your small child to allowing them to navigate the world on their own as adults.

In today’s episode Part 1, I’m reading a letter I wrote to my adult son that ended up being the #1 most-read article on my blog. The response was so overwhelming, I just had to unpack it further sharing the context behind it and what led me to write it.

Look, I’ve always worn my heart on my sleeve, and this letter to my son was no exception. I didn’t expect it to blow up on my blog the way it did, but I guess people connected with the raw honesty and the complexity of this timeframe. When I poured my heart out in that letter to my son, I had no idea it would strike such a chord.

But you know me – I’m an open book, for better or worse.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll find diving deeper into the emotions behind this viral blog post to be equal parts cathartic and terrifying as I do share some (shameful) revelations that may have evoked judgment in me towards another parent perhaps in the past.

Through the application of Stoic wisdom in parenting adult children, my experiences towards personal growth have undergone a transformative journey. This evolution has helped shape me into the woman I am today, enabling me to embrace vulnerability without carrying the burden of shame.

In today’s episode, you’ll also learn:

  • The undeniable universal theme in the transformation of parenting from a little child to parenting adult children
  • Navigating changing roles and finding common ground
  • Challenges faced by both parents AND adult children, seeing each other’s side.
  • The importance of raw honest communication within familial relationships

So strap in, my friend, because we’re about to get real โ€“ real quick! This is one rollercoaster (or trainwreck) you won’t want to miss.

Let’s have a conversation!
