Your daughter is growing up, But you don’t have to grow apart.


Your daughter is about to graduate from high school. Now what?

You worry…

  • Is my daughter mature enough to live on her own? Will she be okay?
  • If her prefrontal cortex isn’t mature until 25 then how is she ready to go to college?
  • What about our relationship? Will I lose her?
  • What’s my role now? What’s next for me?

A daughter’s transition to adulthood can be even more stressful on mothers and daughters than the teen years. In this follow-up to her bestseller Dial Down the Drama, family therapist Colleen O’Grady helps you navigate this tumultuous time with an essential guide- book to this important stage of life and your evolving relationship.


Packed with insights into what you are feeling and experiencing with your daughter right now, and a roadmap for what’s coming, you’ll learn: 

→What’s going on with your daughter emotionally and physiologically, so you can set realistic expectations 

→ How to avoid common emotional traps that mothers can get caught in

→ How to navigate through setbacks and hard conversations 

→ Why it’s imperative to change your parenting role from monitor to trusted consultant—and how to do that 

→ How to make sense of your own mothering story

→ How to use this new phase in your daughter’s life to dial up your own dreams
