    EP 182: Parenting Young Adults with Parent Coach Kim Muench

    EP 182: Parenting Young Adults with Parent Coach Kim Muench

    Are you having a tough time talking to your older teen or young adult?  If they are living at home with you, how do you deal with setting rules for them?  Do you find yourself constantly biting your tongue, or are you in constant conflict with them? 
    There comes a point when your kid starts growing up, and you need to realize they're their own person now. It's like, “Holy crickets! They're in charge of their own life, now!”  For parents, this shift to a new kind of relationship with their adult child can be pretty tricky.
    That’s why my guest this week is Parent Coach, Kim Muench. She’s the Founder of Real Life Parent Guide.  Kim is a Certified Conscious Parenting Coach with the Jai Institute for Parenting, and specializes in working with parents of emerging adults (ages 18-29).
    In this conversation we talk about setting healthy boundaries as the relationship with your child shifts under your feet. Kim has some solid ideas about how to open up the lines of communication and reconnect with your child.  Hint: Much of the work starts with us, the parents.  
     
    **This is Kim's second time on the podcast.  In our first conversation (Episode 117) we talked about her own challenges as a parent which led her to become a parenting coach.  In 2008, her oldest son called her from across the country to say he was in trouble… he was failing classes, about to lose his job, and his use of alcohol was totally out of control.
