Adult Stepchildren–Finding Understanding

with Ron Deal | January 25, 2019

Dan was a widower who had fallen in love again. At first, his 29-year-old son's response was positive but then he got angry and resentful. Not all adult children feel this way but it's not uncommon. A parent in this situation needs to stay connected with the child. This transition is harder for them so be patient. The adult child needs to write down their fears and pray about them. Some will need time and attention while others need to be let go of. Ask God to help you decide which is which.
