What is your goal as a parent?

Of course, it is to raise a well-adjusted, independent, happy and productive adult!

When you feel a bit at-sea during your transition phase, just focus on your good and successful outcome. It is reassuring to know that it is supposed to be that way. And it makes it easier for you to get out of the way and let him live an independent life, too. He'll continue to surprise and impress you for years to come. Enjoy.

I'm voting for Peace.
