Product description


A straight-talking, practical guide... It is designed to help parents help their children, but there is a twist to it which I like - the authors also remind the mother or father in the picture not to forget to think about themselves as well. (Sandi Toksvig OBE, writer, broadcaster, Chancellor – and mother of three)

If it's our families that shape our characters and if it's an upbringing which plots the course of a life, then its those firm roots which keep us coming back (Alasdair Baverstock, AITO Young Travel Writer of the Year (and son of author))

Later! is essential reading for any of us who confront the reality of moving on; in entertaining style, it helps us to look at the realities of the changing nature of our family lives. With simple and amusing exercises it both stretches our thinking and allows us to make some sense of the emotional turmoil that change can bring. For professionals and for parents alike this is a book well worth reading (Nick Whitfield, Chief Executive, Director of Children’s Services, Achieving for Children)

Parenting young adults today is an increasingly tricky business. With so many uncontrollable outside influences coming into play, doubts and dilemmas abound. This book will help you navigate a way through them. Later! suggests strategies for coping, while keeping in touch with our own identities. Refreshingly, it also points out that we all do the wrong thing sometimes - and that's OK. It's consistency and loving care that matters and, above all, not giving up (Sue Cook, writer and broadcaster)

Read this book, absorb its warm wisdom and apply its practical advice and you will without doubt become a better parent and your children better adults. They'll be better prepared for the world that awaits them, and you'll be better prepared for life after they've achieved their independence (Dr Steve Carey, DPhil, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Victoria, Australia)

Can your offspring sew on a button? Do they treat your home like a hotel? Are they in trouble of some sort? Are they coping? Are you coping?

Parenting is a process of constant evolution and, although it brings huge rewards, it is not always easy to negotiate well. With this is mind, the authors of Later! have written a wise and practical guide to help parents guide their offspring through the 16-23 stage. The advice is compassionate, realistic, light of touch and unafraid. What better guide could there be?

(Elizabeth Buchan, author and mother of two)

A book full of pragmatic and practical advice that rings bells on every page (David Roche, bookseller, publisher, agent and father of three sons)

Amid helpful case histories and thought-provoking exercises, there is a great deal of sensible advice on such contentious topics as career paths, first love and the Hotel of Mum and Dad (Mail on Sunday)

Book Description

This practical book addresses the issues that face parents of 16 to 20 somethings - and shows how young people and parents alike can find their feet in a changing world.
