Living at home can be a lifesaver for 20-somethings struggling to make it on their own—but it can also feel like a dead end. Now the authors of the hugely popular Smart but Scattered books on kids and teens provide much-needed help for young adults struggling to build independent lives. This compassionate book presents a 10-step plan for parents and grown kids to work through together. It combines a focus on executive skills (like planning, organization, and time management) with powerful tools for clarifying strengths and goals, staying motivated, and figuring out what kind of parental support is productive—and how much is too much. Richard and Colin Guare's father-and-son reflections are accompanied by vivid stories of other families navigating the same challenges. Purchasers get access to helpful worksheets and forms that can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8½" x 11" size.
