College graduation marks the end of many long years of getting your child through school and homework and testing and adolescence. What it doesn't end is your need to parent and worry and figure out what's next. Terri chatted with Kathy Ceceri, who writes about homeschooling on the All About Homeschooling Facebook page and her site Crafts for Learning, about independence and whether it's the top priority for every single young adult; the need for a support system even when you're off working a fabulous job; the value of living at home and saving money; and the fact that current young adults can't necessarily count on getting the kind of job that will allow them to have their own individual out-of-the-nest lives in the first place. Read the Washington Post article that Kathy found to make Terri feel better about her advance-stage helicopter parenting, and if you're seeing this somewhere without hyperlinks, come to http://parentingroundabout.com for the full recap experience.
