Boomerang Child

with Ron Deal | January 10, 2019

Parents find themselves walking the line between life coach and landlord and children find themselves a lot more dependent than they'd like to be. Stepparents who have not lived with the child may be completely lost. Address this first as a couple by clarifying your expectations. Once you agree share them with the boomerang child and then listen to their needs and expectations. Trust God as you honor your marriage covenant and help the child plant their feet back on the path to independence.
