Welcome to kidsoutnow.com! This site is dedicated to the parents of young adults who are perplexed and frustrated about their kids who have not left the nest and moved into their own home and into a sense of adult independence. These "Kids" are sometimes referred to as twixters, thresholders, kidults, boomerang kids, moochers, bums, and many other not so flattering names. This is a social phenomenon that is world wide and so far there is no help. You may have seen the latest movie ("Failure to Launch") which makes light of this subject. TV shows such as "Good Morning America" and "Dr. Phil" have devoted complete segments to this topic. In fact, Dr. Phil says it is his number 1 request for help. There is even a Fast Food commercial that deals with this subject called "Ready to go". But no one has developed a system for parenting adult children to independence until now. And the good news is that with focus, your young adult can be on the road to independence within six months or less! What you may not realize is that you are the key! No one taught us how to move our grown children into success. The biggest falsehood is that if you get them to college you are done. About 18 million young adults are still sitting at home even after college! With the added burden of taking care of grown children, your dreams of time to do what you would like are gone. Where are those vacations, those interests, and hobbies you want to enjoy before your kids take care of you? Finally, there is help!
