This presentation was fantastic! Thank you for the tips on how we can turn our stresses into a positive depending on how we view the situation. I was not aware of the statistics of Children taking longer to leave home which is now up to age 34. This information has provided me with a better understanding about my younger child's reluctance to get out on her own even though she's twenty. Thanks again. I will be in touch because I would like to ask you to present at one of my upcoming entrepreneur and B2B events.
