Description

Daughters grow up. But you don't have to grow apart.

Picking up where her national bestseller, Dial Down the Drama, left off, Colleen O'Grady's Dial Up the Dream supports you in navigating your daughter's last days at home and her transition to adulthood. This emerging-adult stage can be even more stressful on both mother and daughter than the teen years, because the stakes are higher and the changes to the relationship more profound.

This essential guidebook will validate what you are feeling and experiencing with your daughter right now as well as give you a road map for what's coming. You'll learn:

* Exactly what's going on with your daughter emotionally and physiologically-and how to use this science-based knowledge to set realistic expectations;
* How to think about and navigate the many complex feelings in this journey for both you and your daughter;
* The most common emotional traps we moms get caught in during these years and how to avoid them altogether;
* Why it's imperative to change your parenting role from monitor to trusted consultant-and how to do that;
* How to use this new phase in your daughter's life to dial up your own dreams-and why doing so is imperative to your daughter's development and to having a vibrant, meaningful, lifelong mother-daughter relationship.

Your daughter may be growing up, but that doesn't mean your relationship can't grow stronger.
