Summary
All parents want their children to grow up to be happy, responsible adults. But in spite of mom and dad's best efforts, their most heartfelt prayers, and a loving environment, some kids never successfully make the transition to independent-functioning adulthood. The result is pain for the parents -- and often the repeated cycle of "starting over" that ends only days or weeks later in yet another failure. After struggling with her own adult son, author Allison Bottke offers a tough-love approach to parenting adult children that focuses on setting you free from the repeated pain of your adult child's broken promises, lies, and deception. The simple acronym SANITY provides a description for her six-step program: S = Stop enabling, stop blaming yourself, and stop the flow of money; A= Assemble a support group; N=Nip excuses in the bud; I=Implement rules and boundaries; T=Trust your instincts; Y=Yield everything to God
