  • It’s important to respect the personal space of the person who occupied your womb for nearly a year and then lived in your house for 18 more.

  • If your grown child still lives with you, delegate household tasks. Make them do the laundry, wash the dishes, and promise you that life won’t always be like this.

  • Recognize their achievements by displaying notes from their yearly performance review on the refrigerator.

  • Accept that your child is a capable adult with a mind of his or her own and no money of his or her own.
