1. Great post and welcome on board! Your post applies to how one should treat every adult. It’s like praying over one’s spouse’s head instead of trying to control one’s spouse. I hope I remember to shut up and pray when I have teenage and adult children. Thank you!

    1. Thank you for the invite! I hope this blog post helps someone.

      It’s going to be difficult. They go from teenager to full blown adulthood in the blink of an eye. So when we see them struggling in their 20’s we feel compelled to help them. But they may see the advice as overstepping and start to become resentful.

      I still find myself want to counsel my son especially when I see foolery going on. But I have to fall back and remember he’s a grown man. What I am learning is it’s all about the approach. Before leaping in with advice, I’ll say…”have you considered?” With this approach I show respect for his ability to make his own decisions.
