I just started a social group. Here's the description: "Being the parent of an older teen or adult child can be just as challenging as many other stages of parenthood. This group is for parents o

I don't qualify, but I just wanted to say I do appreciate people bringing their older teen/young adult challenges to the board.  It helps us moms of youngers to prepare for what is to come.

It can be very scary. The hardest thing about parenting is that you don't know whether you've done a good job until it's too late to do anything about it! I think women often struggle with how co

Is the group set now so it can't be searched? "Secret" or something?

The three Club settings are Open (public), Closed (invite only), and Private - that's the one that can't be searched.  I think this group currently still just Closed, although the group owner is trying to change it. Appears to be hard to change the setting once the club is set up??

I don't know if I previously asked for an invite - but I'd like one.  though my kid that is the "would give the best parents in the world a run for their money" - is only 14.  but I have four adults, and they've had their own challenges.

Didn’t request an invite when this was first posted. I must have been feeling confident. LOL. But I have been thinking about digging up this thread and requesting and invite so when it resurfaced today I guessed it was meant to be.

I have 21, 19, 16, and 11.

I missed this post first time around.  Please add me too.  All mint are in this group.  And yes, I found adulthood and almost adulthood to be the hardest parenting and still do-- all the concern and no real power makes it super hard.

I'd like an invite. Nineteen-going-on-twenty kid with ASD and dysgraphia, so smart, but failing spectacularly at keeping up with assignments at college and managing his own self-care.

I would like an invitation too. Though I have rarely posted during my years here, I often am found to say to my sisters (who live out of state from me), "On the WTM, I learned...". You all are my people though I usually sit quietly on the side lines learning and nodding my head.

My son is 21 and in his senior year at university. My second child is 6 years old, so all the friends I went through the homeschool journey with when I homeschooled my son K-12 have moved on to their after homeschooling life. I have worked very hard to be connected to the homeschool moms in my local homeschool community with young children, but I am old enough to be a mom to some of the moms. These dear ladies aren't many years older than my son, and they are in the trenches with littles.  I would love some support from others in the trenches with young adults.

I'm interested!😊 I have a 19 yo. Will this be a private group? I'd love to be part of a very supportive, encouraging group for moms of older kiddos!

This is currently a closed group. I haven't been able to figure out how to switch it to private. I've emailed and stuff but no luck.
