Your Relationship with Parents Changes in Young Adulthood
One of the issues you may face right now is in understanding the changing relationship that you have with your parents. You are no longer a child, but you are still their child. On one hand, they may still treat you as such. On the other hand, they may expect more independence from you than you are ready to handle.
Many young adults find themselves struggling financially to make ends meet.
Student loan debt and soaring housing costs have made it difficult for your generation to afford to move out of your parents’ homes. Therefore, you might still live at home. Even if you’ve moved out, you may rely on your parents for financial help. Either way, this can pose challenges to fully realizing your adulthood in your parents’ eyes.
Or perhaps you don’t have that parental support. You may have to navigate the tricky waters of early adulthood, including the finances, all on your own. That places a lot of stress on you.
The great news is that most people find that their relationship does improve with their parents over time. The teen years are rough for both you and them. As you move further into adulthood, you can have a much better connection.
Therapy can help you improve your relationship with your parents starting today.
