Join marriage expert Jim Burns as he offers practical advice and hopeful encouragement for one of the richest and most challenging seasons of being a parent. We will be celebrating the launch of the book – Doing Life with Your Adult Children.

Join us at the DLWAC Retreat to learn about:

• Is it OK to give advice to our adult child?

• What’s the difference between enabling and empowering?

• What do we do when our child doesn’t seem to be maturing into adulthood?

• How do we relate to our adult child’s significant other?

• What does it mean to have healthy financial boundaries?

• How can we support our adult children when we don’t approve their values?
