E106: Relating to Parents After Moving Out

When I move out, how will things change between my parents and me?

This week, we discuss the relational changes that often happen between us and our parents when we move away after graduation. How do I handle the loss of day-to-day interactions? What's the proper balance between dependence and independence? What are some practical steps I can take today to navigate these changes? Steve Argue, PhD (Fuller Youth Institute), provides some much-needed insight as we wrap up the parents portion of our relational transition series.
