If you're successful as a parent, your children will grow up and leave home as independent, self-reliant adults. If your child is very young, you might think you have a long time before you need to worry about such grown-up issues, but once your little one has progressed successfully through the first two stages of attachment, you should be looking to her future. To do so, you must help her grow to become a responsible, contributing adult. Your role as a parent never ends; it just changes as your child grows.
