Did you ever imagine you would make these adult children mistakes?
What we mean when we say mistakes with adult children, we mean those little things that you may be doing when interacting with your children or even grandchildren that are inadvertently pushing them away from you instead of getting them closer. It happens more often than not that parents end up making mistakes in the way in which they interact with their already grown-up children, and while it seems simple, it is actually more complicated than that, and you need to manage and even change how you act!
They will always be your children, and you will always be a parent, but you cannot just expect the relationships you have to never change. Do not become that parent that cannot recognize that their child has grown up and is now independent; it is one of the mistakes with adult children that a lot of parents make and then wonder why they rarely hear from their children.
Once they are on their own and may even have their own children, you can only support them and build your relationship with them instead of expecting things to stay the same, down to the way in which you have done holidays when they were little.
The dynamic has changed, and to help you not push away your children, we have made a list of the most common adult children mistakes most seniors make, so you know what to avoid doing and keep your relationship with them intact and healthy!
