Emptying the Nest: Launching Your Young Adult toward Success and Self-Reliance
Sachs, Brad E.
In today's rapidly changing world and challenging economy, young adults increasingly find themselves at a crossroads between financial and emotional dependence and autonomy. Drawing on Dr. Sachs' extensive clinical experience and his illuminating discussion of the latest psychological research, "Emptying the Nest" will support parents in their efforts to cultivate their young adult's success and self-reliance while simultaneously maintaining healthy family relationships. Parents will: (1) understand the family dynamics that either impede or nurture self-sufficiency; (2) foster a higher degree of academic, professional, and fiscal responsibility; (3) effectively encourage young adults to establish realistic goals and create a meaningful vision for their future; and (4) learn how to gradually let go, so that young adults discover how to resolve their own problems.
