post-parenthood. Even if their adult children are out of the house, they're not out of their hearts.

Jane Adams, best-selling author of When Our Grown Kids Disappoint Us, provides
parents who want a loving, mutual relationship with their kids and their kids' kids the skills and strategies that will keep them in their lives
even when time, distance and different life styles sometimes fray the ties that bind.
