The Grown & Flown community is something I have been a part of for years.  Mary Dell Harrington and Lisa Heffernan has done an incredible job of building this community and have published a book that needs to adorn the shelf of any parent of teens, or young adults.  It is a handbook and reference guide that answers all those parenting questions that stop us in our tracks, or simply make us think, "Is anyone else having SAT and ACT prep anxiety like my kid?"  or "Are any of you struggling with anxiety with your teen?"

In this episode we talk about:

Episode 78: Teens & Young Adults Coping with Covid 19 with Mary Dell Harrington

Read more
Mary Dell Harrington joins me on the Family Brain to talk about the impact of Covid 19 on
young adults and their families. Graduations are being held online, proms are cancelled, and life
as we know it has changed drastically. Mary Dell’s Facebook community of Grown and Flown
is an online place for parents to come together around the specific gifts and challenges of older
“grown and flown” children, many of whom are coming back to the nest during this time of the

Mary Dell talks about how she is managing her quarantine with her husband, pup, and grown children.
Enjoying the unexpected time together while also processing all the changes and adjustments
happening. We talk about how parents are noticing that kids are missing their friends, but that kids are
enjoying the slowing down from all the activities. Mary Dell suggests that perhaps we are at a tipping
point where we reexamine how we structure our lives. We discuss the financial impact of this crisis on
college aged kids and how that will change our summers.

“If we treat our kids as the responsible people that they are they tend to respond as responsible

Sonya Renee Taylor says:
“We will not go back to normal. Normal never was. Our pre-corona existence was not normal other
than we normalized greed, inequity, exhaustion, depletion, extraction, disconnection, confusion, rage,
hoarding, hate, and lack. We should not long to return, my friends. We are being given the opportunity
to stitch a new garment. One that fits all of humanity and nature.”

Lisa Heffernan and Mary Dell Harrington, GROWN & FLOWN

Read more

Lisa Heffernan and Mary Dell Harrington are the coauthors of Grown & Flown: How to Support Your Teen, Stay Close as a Family, and Raise Independent Adults. They are also the co-creators of Grown & Flown, the number one community site for parents with teens and college students, reaching millions of parents every month. They started their community when they saw how few resources there were for parents of no-longer-little-kids. Their book continues this tradition by addressing some of the most challenging, exciting, heartbreaking, and consequential years of parenting with essays and input from experts and parents alike. Our talk was super helpful to me as it came right before my oldest son went off to boarding school. Best tips: make the bed first, write a goodbye letter, plan some bonding activities in the aftermath of drop-off.

Episode 56 Grown and Flown with Mary Dell Harrington: Parenting Through the Teen Years

In the kickoff episode of The Family Brain series on parenting teens, I talk with Mary Dell Harrington, coauthor of the newly released book Grown and Flown. I heard about the Grown and Flown Facebook community from my sister in law who is the parent of teens, and although I don't yet have teenagers I knew this was a community I wanted to be a part of to prep for my future parenting years. In talking with Mary Dell, my biggest take away is that parenting never ends, which can be reassuring and daunting all at the same time. While parenting doesn't ever end, the relationship shifts over time, and I talk with Mary Dell about how she discovered a need for a resource for teen and young adult parents to help them navigate that changing relationship. Hundreds of well known writers and researchers contribute to the Grown and Flown community pages, and their insights help remind us that we are not alone in the process of parenting older children. Mary Dell Harrington has found that parents were not interested in managing the empty nest but rather learning more about the evolution of parenting over time.

You can purchase Grown & Flown on amazon (or listen in audible) and in bookstores starting September 3, 2019
