Instead of hovering like a protective guardian, encourage their independence. Allow them to make decisions and even mistakes; these are the stepping stones toward growth

The parenting journey is a perpetual evolution, a dynamic process that transforms from late-night feedings to soccer games, from high school graduations to the first day of college. Just when you thought you had mastered the art of nurturing, the time comes when your children cross the threshold into young adulthood.

As they spread their wings, your role shifts from caregiver to consultant, from guiding their every step to offering a steady hand when they need it most.


The transition from parenting adolescents to young adults is a delicate phase of exploration and self-discovery for your child. Instead of hovering like a protective guardian, encourage their independence. Allow them to make decisions and even mistakes; these are the stepping stones toward growth.

Open Communication

As young adults, your children are exposed to a multitude of experiences and ideas, some of which might differ from your own. Create an environment where they feel safe expressing their thoughts and feelings, even if they contradict your viewpoints.

Authority to Advice

Gone are the days of giving orders and expecting unwavering compliance. Instead, position yourself as a source of wisdom and guidance. Share your experiences, triumphs, and tribulations, and offer advice when sought. Allow them the autonomy to make their own decisions, even if they might not align with your choices.


While young adults strive for independence, they still require a safety net of support. Be their confidant when life gets tough, offering a listening ear and a shoulder to lean on. Celebrate their achievements, no matter how big or small. Your unwavering presence assures them that, despite the changes, they can always count on your love and encouragement.
