A Word From Sharon Greenthal

"You've raised your kids - but your job is far from over. Let me help you navigate the challenges of parenting your young adults. Whatever their situation - living on their own or living with you; working full time or still in school; single and loving it or married and parents of their own little ones;  your young adult children will still need you sometimes. Understanding what their lives are like and how to talk to them as the adults they are can help to make your relationships closer and more comfortable."
