We have exciting news to share! We’ve just released our new book, Wings Not Strings: Parenting Strategies to Let Go with Confidence! As our follow-up to Parenting for the Launch, people are calling it “a must read for every parent and an insightful guide to raising strong and independent kids who turn into exceptional adults!”
We wrote this book because so many young adults are struggling after they leave home and parents are grappling with the practical and emotional demands of preparing them for independence. Truly, “When and how do I let go?” is the most common question we receive from parents! Here is our answer.
Wings Not Strings offers parents vision and strategies to confidently move over to the passenger seat and equip their children with wings to soar. It helps them avoid the pitfalls of contemporary parenting approaches that are inhibiting the self-confidence and adult readiness of today’s adolescents. And, it provides encouragement and powerful solutions to help parents overcome their fears and position their relationship to flourish in the adult years. Readers will:
· Understand the concerning signs in today’s young adults, their causes, and the role that parenting is playing
· Discover how to build self-confident and empowered children through encouragement, training, and communication
· Learn to let go gradually, naturally, and confidently and conquer their fears, pressures, and emotions
· Build the leadership skills and attributes children need to succeed in the real world
· Help their children prevent and manage anxiety as they emerge into adulthood
We’ve already received overwhelmingly positive reviews from parenting experts and educators:
Trisha Novotny, Founder, 24/7 Moms:
“Their written tools to guiding both the launching of our teens, as well as our role in letting them go, have taken me from questioning my own abilities to now being confident that I can release them to soar. A fantastic book and must read for every parent.”
Scott McQuilkin, VP for Institutional Advancement, Whitworth University:
“With insight, clarity, warmth, humility, and intelligence, Dennis and Arlyn have provided tools for families to shape, and then launch, their children into adulthood, equipped to flourish.”
Sandy Fowler, Co-Founder and Podcast Host, Mighty Parenting:
“Their vision of releasing an eagle to soar to the heights, rather than a kite we continue to control—giving children wings, not strings—is a beautiful one that guides us to doing what’s best for both our children and ourselves.”
