Adulting 101: Family

Resources for life skills including finances, food, fitness, and more.

Introduction to Family

As you become an adult, your relationship with family will change. You will likely rely less on your parents and may begin taking steps to start a family of your own. Even your found family will start to shift, as close friends move on to other colleges, become preoccupied with work, and find that their goals no longer run directly parallel to your own.

Maintaining contact with the people who love and support you (and letting go of the ones who don't) can be a daunting task, but it's one of the few things in the world that's absolutely worth doing.
