Book Summary

Many books teach you how to handle your children after they graduate from diapers, but none tells you how to proceed once they graduate from high school. Comedy writer Gail Parent and noted psychotherapist Susan Ende combine their wit and expertise to give advice with an edge, answering questions relating to money, the college years, living arrangements, work, dating, family rituals, marriage, in-laws, grandchildren, divorce, and aging and illness.
