How do you Support Your Grown Children?

Elise figured her job as a parent was done when her youngest child, Heather, turned 18 and went off to college.

Elise feels she is still responsible for her child’s life, a feeling she does not relish. How can Elise get Heather to stand on her own two feet without making her feel abandoned? When do you think your own work as a parent will be complete?
