Press Information


Dr. Kastner clearly understands the dilemmas faced by families when young adult children enter their last year of high school and prepare to leave home. Parents, high school seniors, and college freshmen will benefit from her wise advice and common sense approach to these crucial transitional years. Brava! ~ Ann F. Caron, Ed.D., author of Mother to Daughter: Searching for New Connections , Don't Stop Loving Me, and Strong Mothers, Strong Sons.

With common sense and uncommon sensitivity, Kastner and Wyatt address the double bind of parenting late adolescents -- letting go and holding on, all at the same time. An invaluable guide to the developmental challenges both generations face during this critical transition! ~ Jane Adams, author, I'm Still Your Mother: How to Get Along With Your Grown-Up Children for the Rest of Your Life (and Reclaiming Your Life: How to Let Go Of Your Grown Kids' Problems Without Letting Go Of Them, coming in 2003 from Free Press)

Packed with engaging examples, fresh insights and inventive strategies, The Launching Years is a brilliant and practical book about the long and winding road from senior year to college life. I plan to buy it for every college bound family I know. ~ Dr. Barbara Mackoff, author, Growing a Girl
