Most parents realize when they can give their child more space, and trust. But to master the art of when to say no, and still get along is a life time achievement at any age! What do you think? Even adult children need to be handled with kid gloves and lots of understanding, and knowing when to just listen as they vent.
parenting is a two way thing- you allow your chiildren some freedom in return for coming home when they say they will, and build on this. You as a parent have a responsibility to your children to protect them and make them aware of things they should be wary of. In the end children grow and want to continue to push the boundaries that we put around them, this is perfectly normal. Only you can say as a parent what is acceptable. When children become adults it's only fair to listen to all sides, explaining your reasons for the decisions that you have made. You are quite right about listening skills- these are greatly under used. I have found that just by listening and not jumping to conclusions or accasations that your children much appreciate your understanding.
