An essential guide for parents

Boomerang Kids: A Revealing Look at Why So Many of Our Children Are Failing on Their Own, and How Parents Can HelpDo you want to know why I love books? Because there's a book for everything. There's so much knowledge out there to be tapped into and when we need to study up on something or find tips that can help us at certain times of our lives, all we have to do is flip the pages of a book.

Take Boomerang Kids: A Revealing Look at Why So Many of Our Children Are Failing on Their Own, and How Parents Can Help by Carl Pickhardt Phd. This book addresses a problem that's not widely discussed, but yet, so many families are experiencing. About 85 percent of college graduates in the United States move back home after graduation--so why is this happening and what can parents do to help?

Many young adults are finding it hard to take on the world alone and frankly, with the way the economy is, it's not a surprise. Carl Pickhardt takes a hard look at how these stories are becoming more and more common and he dubs this stage "trial independence." The book dives into some of the problems your young adult might be experiencing--from missing home and family, flunking out of college, unemployment, roommate problems, broken love relationships, fear of the future and more.

If you're a parent who has found your young adult back home, this book is a great resource to help you understand this period in your child's life and how to guide your child to success.
