Description:

“A shrewd account of a problem the boomer generation didn’t know it had created: the consequences of helicopter parenting. We’ve pampered our kids so much they don’t want to grow up.” -James Atlas, author ofMy Life in the Middle AgesParents once dreamed of dropping their prodigies at first-choice colleges and sighing with relief at a job well done. Nowadays, though, mothers and fathers are stressing about whether Jessica or Josh will boomerang back after graduation—and still be there years later. Why are so many wunderkinds now s-l-o-w-l-y slouching toward adulthood? Panicked after reading that twenty-eight is the new nineteen, Sally Koslow—journalist and mother—searched for answers. Part hard-hitting investigation and part hilarious memoir,Slouching Toward Adulthoodis a heartfelt cri de coeur that can help families negotiate life around the unexpectedly crowded dining tables for years to come.
