What is the difference between the kid who struggles to "adult" and the one who jumps in feet first, ready to thrive? It all comes down to mindsets, skillsets, and toolsets. Either we as parents raise kids who are dependent on us or we raise kids who are confident, capable, and eager to take on the challenges of an independent adult life. In Raising Them Ready, parenting experts and bestselling authors Jonathan and Erica Catherman give you practical ways to prepare your kids for life on their own. They help you assess how your kids respond to the everyday demands of life, provide practices for redirecting them from seeing adulthood as a series of threats to anticipating exciting challenges, and give you an inventory of the real-world adulting mindsets, skillsets, and toolsets your kids should acquire before leaving the nest. By putting into practice the advice in this book, you can stop worrying about if your kids will make it on their own and start celebrating alongside them this adventure called life.
