I Thought I’d Be Done by Now
is a book of short essays and stories that provide comfort and challenge, inspiration and practical guidance to worried mothers (and fathers) of 20 to 50 year old adult children. Each one-page vignette ends with a one-sentence summarizing lesson, and a comprehensive index allows parents of adult children to look up specific topics such as releasing guilt and fear and learning to laugh at ourselves.

The Author:
Wendy Boorn is a licensed psychotherapist, specializing in training individuals, parents, couples, and families to create deep and respectful connections. Drawing on her 33 years of professional experience, her 45 years as a mother of two, and 21 as a grandmother of three, she has helped countless parents of adult children learn how to stay close without interfering. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona, happily just one mile from her adult daughter.

"I was always either worried about how screwed-up my adult kids were, or how screwed-up my relationships with them were. I felt guilty and blamed myself for their problems. Then I started working with Wendy Boorn and everything changed. Now I know how to have peace of mind regardless of how my kids are doing.”

For the first time in years, we had a peaceful Thanksgiving, because I understand that they still need my approval. I have learned how to listen deeply.”
