Publisher's Summary

It can be a challenge to say good-bye and send your child out into the world on his or her own, whether it's to college or to join the workforce. This book provides tips on what you need to make sure your child knows, how to handle your own life once the nest is empty, and even what you need to think about if your child ever hits a stumbling block and needs to return home for a while. Things like doing his or her own laundry, checking freshness dates on the milk, and taking up new interests are included - as well as the importance of boundaries if you and your grown child begin sharing a roof again. Listen to gain some useful knowledge on what your children might need to know before they spread their wings and leave the nest.

Good parental guide to be independent! Good book to prepare our kids and teach them to be independent and responsible. As they grow old this a good guide to prepare them in everyday living. Even at their early age its not bad to learn even if its any certain thing or basic. So that as they grow old they will grow up as good person and responsible. Valuable tool parental guide!
