1.Know what stage of the Family Life Cycle you’re in to get a handle on where you’re all at. Result: This will help prepare you and them for what’s to come in their life if they choose.

2.Learn what important milestones your adult children are striving towards and need to accomplish to successfully transition to the next stage of their development. Result: A better understanding of why your young adult does what he/she does and how you can support them to reach their goals.
