Review of Commentary: When Kids Grow Up

Citing the statistic that 4 million grandparents in the U.S. are raising their grandchildren, the commentator expresses the belief that one of the best gifts we can give our adult children is that of independence.
"My children left years ago creating lives with distinct values," Vulgamore states. "My heart aches to keep my children close but I applaud their independence."
The tone of this piece isn't sweet or sentimental. Instead it is real and authoritative, with a healthy dose of grandmotherly common sense.
