You’ve parented for 936 weeks, and your kid has graduated and moved on to what’s next. Whether they still live at home or you’ve already converted their room into a workout studio, you might be in the best phase of your kid’s life. While parenting won’t look the same anymore, it isn’t over yet. Your kid still needs you.

Eighteen Plus is a guide to help you parent in this new unfamiliar phase. You will discover how your emerging adult is changing, how their world is changing, and what they still need from you (besides more money.)

“One thing I love about this book is that it meets parents right where they are at. Even the busiest parent can gain wise advice just by reading through the left pages in the book. I love how the left pages are fun and easy to read. If a parent has more time and wants to further read on that advice they can move over the the right pages. The wisdom in this book is wonderful and the layout is perfect for parents who may just have a few seconds to look at it at a time … I would happily pass it on to others!”
