Shannon over at Rocks In My Dryer is hosting a backwards edition of Works For Me Wednesday, which means we get to ask the questions. Mine has to do with parenting adult children. How do we know what is okay and what is too much?
This is a question I've struggled with since transitioning from just plain Mom to Mom of adult children, one of whom is now married.
I don't want to be the dreaded nosy-bossy-wicked mother-in-law but at the same time, I want to be there when they need/want me. I like to give gifts and am pretty accomplished at sniffing out great deals. But this is where the dilemma comes in: What is okay and what is too much?
Some of you may have already gone through this and can offer some sage advice.
Some of you are on the other end, and can share from the adult child perspective what you think.
ALL ideas and suggestions appreciated!
