Whether our kids are just starting high school, planning for college, searching for their first job, or struggling to determine their next steps in life, we may find ourselves teetering on the parenthood fence. Are we still their caregiver? Their disciplinarian? Their problem solver? What are our boundaries? Can we see the line between being supportive and loving, and being the rescuer/protector? How does that change once they attend college or leave home?
