Although the current generation of young adults is more well-traveled, technologically sophisicated and accomplished than young people a generation ago, it seems that it's harder than ever for young adults to leave home emotionally and for parents to let go.

In this episode, Dr. McCoy talks about the necessity of loving our kids and trusting in their competence enough to let them go. Giving our children a firm sense of values and a sense of who they are and where they come from is vital. So is giving them wings -- wings build by teaching them independent living skills, letting them fight their own battles and solve their own problems, letting them know that it's O.K. to go, to be scared, to be unsure and to be excited as they venture out of the nest. Your beloved children will thank you, even many years later.
