With over half of their 20-somethings living at home full or part time, baby boomers are navigating a tricky new stage of life - post-parenthood. Even if their adult children are out of the house, they're not out of their hearts. Jane Adams, best-selling author of When Our Grown Kids Disappoint Us, provides parents who want a loving, mutual relationship with their kids and their kids' kids the skills and strategies that will keep them in their lives even when time, distance and different life styles sometimes fray the ties that bind.
