Slouching Toward Adulthood free pdf "The helicopter parent has crashed and burned. . . . Sally Koslow [has] documented a generation so cosseted that they have lost the impetus to grow up or leave home. The over-involved parent has gone from paragon of caring to a figure of fun." --Lisa Endlich Heffernan, "The Atlantic" Parents 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 Adulthood" is a heartfelt cri de coeur that can help families negotiate life around the unexpectedly crowded dining tables for years to come.
