Parents Letting Go:
Effectively Launching Your Millennial

How can we as parents manage the process of letting go in love so that our young adult has the best chance to move toward healthy emotional and behavioral independence?

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.

Dr. Jack is a great psychologist and counselor, his advice is very wise, sound and timely. We have been working with him for a year and enjoy his savvy advice and down to earth approach to solve issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Jack to any parent of young adults or young adults themselves seeking for guidance and advice.

I have seen Dr. Jack during multiple difficult periods of my life over the past 20 years. I’ve also referred friends and family to him and we all agree that he is an outstanding therapist. He is knowledgeable, empathetic, wise, kind, and willing to say what we need to hear. He has played an important role in my growth and well-being; my mental health, my relationships, and my parenting have all been recipients of Dr. Jack’s positive influence. Highly recommend!

When I met Jack it was on the heels of a very negative and damaging experience with a female psychologist. I was very leery and absolutely not about to trust anyone. In my work with Jack I have found him to be very principled, honest and willing to work however hard I was willing to work. He would encourage me when I was frustrated and troubled. At times, when I was finally able to laugh at myself some, he would sometimes laugh with me. Jack has been the most one of the most, if not the most, influence in my life. I would highly recommend him to anyone. More importantly, I would trust him to care for my family and loved ones.

We have been working with Dr. Jack for nearly one year and are very appreciative of his efforts. He has taken a great personal interest in our family and has been committed to helping us through this unknown journey of life. Dr. Jack has a so much experience with teenagers and adult children, and their parents. He has been able to give us more structure and consistency while helping our children to feel more autonomous while taking more responsibility for the future. At the same time, Dr. Jack has also helped me to be more compassionate and accepting. I highly recommend him to any family trying to launch.

Jack really helped my son and I agree on a path forward. My son benefited from the introspection and the realism of Jack's therapy and coaching. He found a new job while they were working together. Jack also referred a sleep psychologist who top notch, like Jack. I regularly recommend Jack ti parents struggling with concerns about their adult children.

3 Truths to Help Parents Foster their Children into Adulthood

In the book I have written, The Launch Code: Loving and Letting Go of Our Adult Children (out later this year), I describe three truths that form the foundation of the work I do with parents and young adults to ensure a positive transition to adulthood. Love Goes Both Ways First, parents love their kids, […]

How to Be More Than a B+ Father

With the recent advent of Father’s Day, I started to reflect on how well I raised my kids to be kind, self-sufficient, and independent young adults. I loved my father (he was a good provider and modeled integrity), but he was part of the silent generation. He learned little from his father about showing affection, […]

A Parent’s Critical Role in Young Adult Identity Formation

Quite a few young adults feel comfortable living at home, taking advantage of room and board, if not other services, and playing video games late into the night. Such an identity will not naturally lead to leaving home, getting a job, finding an apartment, etc. Japan has a severe problem in this regard, which is […]
