Setting Boundaries with Your Adult Children
Reviewed By: Melinda Cianos
Author Allison Bottke has written several books and has been featured on the popular television program, The 700 Club. She is the general editor for the God Allows U-Turns series and she wants parents to know that it is time, and their right, to take back control of their lives in a God-centered way, with a loving firmness and boundaries that offer security to both the parent and the child.
In Setting Boundaries with Your Adult Child, Bottke explains the difference between parents who “enable” and parents who “help.” She draws from her own experiences with her wayward son, differentiating between the strategies that help and heal, and those that only cause more suffering. She subscribes to a “tough love” approach and is direct in her delivery of the material she believes parents must have in order to usher their maturing children into responsible adulthood. Well worth reading.
