Now on Amazon - Ettie's Guide To De-Nesting How To Help Your Grown Children Move Out

Help Is Here For Parents of Boomerang Kids - Ettie's Guide To De-Nesting

"Your kids can still shoot for the stars.
They just have to build their own rocket." - Ettie G


With a staggering number of young adults returning home to live with Mom & Dad, many parents are now struggling to help their grown child find independence. As parents, we love our kids - but they can't stay around forever. 'How to Help Your Grown Children Move Out: Ettie's Guide to De-Nesting' was written to offer practical insights for parents looking to make a positive change.

Ettie's Guide addresses the growing trend of boomerang kids: grown children still living at home. This has rapidly become a common and widespread pattern. According to a 2012 Pew Research Poll, 13% of parents with grown children report at least one of them currently living back at home. In some areas, more then 50% of college graduates move directly back home. The same trend has also been widely seen in Canada, Australia and throughout much of Europe.

Many of these young adults return home directly from college, some with a diploma, many without. Others venture into self-reliance, but then lacking a financial foundation, eventually return back to the nest. Some simply never make it out in the first place.

No matter the circumstances, a solution must be found.

Helping your 're-nester' find not just a way out, but the right way out, can be a critical factor for years to come - for both parents and child alike. The goal here is to get it right the first time - if this is indeed your first time. That's why it's all about the plan. As Ettie says, 'You wouldn't just start stapling Christmas lights to your house without a finished product in mind. Why plan this less?'

Ettie's Guide offers a lighthearted look at the trend, but with a serious approach toward action. Her plan breaks down a specific timeframe of important milestones, all to gear up for the big move. It also addresses many of the common stumbling blocks that can derail the effort, both before the departure and after.

You already know what you want to see: your child living happily, independently, and elsewhere. The plan you put into action should prepare your young one to spread their wings wide, and hopefully remember to phone once in a while.

Ettie can help with that.

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
