I am watching, with increasing awe, the number of parents who are absolutely aching because of their adult children who are "bleeding them dry."
Biblically, children are to grow up in the nurture and guidance of their parents. Then, as the parents age (and the children age too), those grown children "repay" their parents by honoring them and caring for their needs.
We've lost much of that, do you not agree? Everywhere there are children who range anywhere from their twenties to even forty, fifty, or sixty- who refuse to grow up and take responsibility for their lives. They go back to their parents and try to be babies again, driving their poor parents to near insanity.

If you are a parent who keeps trying to pick up the pieces of your adult child's out-of-control life, this FREE Informational Webcast is for you. You are not alone in your struggles.
