In an earlier blog, I discussed myths or beliefs parents believe that cause undue suffering.

For parents who […]

Dr. Jack Stoltzfus – America’s Launch Coach
Parents Letting Go provides counseling and resources for parents of adult children. Dr. Jack Stoltzfus – America’s Launch Coach – has a mission to provide help to parents of young adults in the process of letting go and launching their young adult children. Managing this push and pull process by both parents and young adults has become more complicated and challenging.
Both parties are taking longer to say goodbye. Parents and their young adult children are closer these days than past generations. But this often strains the letting go process. According to an article in Psychology Today, more than half of children ages 18-24 live with their parents. Living at home is now the number one living arrangement for young adults between the ages of 18-34 (US Census Bureau).
Counseling and educational resources for parents of adult children can be difficult to find. Parents Letting Go is a growing resource for all the issues parents face with adult children. Whether it’s a failure to launch, communication gaps, or information on how to handle disagreements, Parents Letting Go has it covered.

Google “twenty-somethings,” and you will see a considerable denigration of this generation. So, I’d like to set the record straight or, at a minimum, bring some balance to […]
