Author of parenting guide to appear at Tatnuck Saturday, May 18

AE Jeffrey Arnett 051813 10-12 TBWestborough – Many parents nowadays are finding that instead of dealing with an empty nest situation as their children get older, the nest stays at full-occupancy. That’s because a still faltering economy, among other factors, results in 20-something kids who aren’t prepared to go off on their own.

That’s where Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, Ph.D., the co-author of “When Will My Grown-Up Kid Grow Up?,” comes in. On Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Arnett will be at Tatnuck Bookseller to sign copies of his book which discusses strategies and techniques to help parents understand what their kids are going through and how they can help promote a successful transition to adulthood.

Arnett is also the author of “Emerging Adulthood,”  the editor of the Journal of Adolescent Research; and executive director of the Society for the Study of Emerging Adulthood. He is also a research professor in the Department of Psychology at Clark University in Worcester.

The event is open to the public. Tatnuck Bookseller is located in the Westborough Shopping Center, Route 9 and Lyman Street.
