Parents often assume that their job as a parent is complete when their children reach adulthood. If you have a child who has returned home to live, you've discovered that's not true. Even if your adult child has successfully launched into adulthood, you continue to be a parent to them. In You Never Stop Being a Parent, Jim Newheiser and Elyse Fitzpatrick ground you in guidance from God's Word and remind you that your relationship with your adult child can only be as deep and meaningful as your relationship with God. Paperback.

Review 1 for You Never Stop Being a Parent: Thriving in Relationship with Your Adult Children
Date:July 21, 2010
Saying that this book was timely for my husband and I hardly does it justice. With 11 children, ages 14 to 23, "You Never Stop Being a Parent" was a godsend. Although we are familiar with the Ultimate Source (the Holy Scriptures), Mr. Newheiser and Mrs. Fitzpatrick have once again written a book which we find rich in practical application of those Scriptures. Subjects such as finances, house rules (and when to change them), and marriage (strengthening your own and preparing for your childrens') are covered thoroughly in this well written book. Ample examples satisfied my own unending what-does-that-look-like-in-real-life questions and a "sample contract for your young adult" will be used and reused in our home over the next few years. The young adults still living in our home would likely say "thank you" to the authors if given the chance, as they are currently reaping the benefits of how this book has taught my husband and I to better implement biblical principles in their lives.
