    Does anyone else have far-left adult children while you are more on the conservative side? How is it going for you? Any tips?
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Yes, I do. We've learned not to discuss lots of things, and basically stick to neutral topics.

    Okay, I'll give you a more serious reply as the parent of 3 adult children who haven't always followed a path their father would have chosen for them. I know different parents have different approaches, but when my children became adults I treated them like adults. I stopped giving parental advice or direction unless they asked for it. My role of trying to influence their behavior is over unless I'm invited to do so. I remember how I would have felt at their age about unsolicited advice when I envisioned myself as a grown up capable of making my own decisions.

    I don't need to discuss our differences about their religion, politics, or choice of romantic partners. But, I'll talk about it honestly when asked. The end result is we're all great friends and no one is upset at Thanksgiving dinner.
