A friend of mine has a son in college who recently returned home for Summer break. I'm trying to get her to join the forums as she has a wealth of information to share. We were recently talking about the transition of him leaving for college and then returning. She initially thought everything would return to the "pre-college" ways until he came home. Their relationship had made another change since he no longer needed her in the same way. Just like when he was a newborn, she continued to listen to his cues and adjusts when needed. The last time we spoke, they were planning a family meeting to rediscover their roles as Mom, Dad, and adult son. She reinforced to me why AP doesn't stop when our children become independent adults.
No announcement yet.
Home for the summer
