Parenting Your Adult Child

9:37 AM  Aug 30th, 2011
by Michelle Tedford

A book by Susan Veihdeffer Vogt ’69
A mother of four, Vogt gives parents hope, guidance and support as she addresses the personal and spiritual formation of adult children. She writes from a Catholic perspective but provides lessons for families of any faith. “The kids don’t always follow the path we hoped or wanted for them … but that’s part of our faith journey — learning how to let go and trust God.” A professional Catholic family minister for more than 30 years with husband Jim ’68, she is also a vowed lay Marianist and points to Mary’s formation of Jesus — and by Jesus — as instructive for parents: Our children form us.
