It’s hard when our kids reach adulthood. Especially if they still live at home. When do we cut the strings? Some say, “Well, when you’re 18, you’re out of here!” Others, they just don’t want it to end. But when there are more difficult battles than peace, it’s time. How should we handle it? Well, never during an argument. We need to make time and calmly tell our kids that we love them—help them realize the arguing and disrespect are just too much. Maybe it’s God’s way of preparing us for leaving the nest. We shouldn’t cut them off though. Help them to establish a budget and a plan and to look for a place to live. Hopefully, they’ll see how much you care by how you walk them through the process.
