Describe your relationship with your adult child.
How does your adult child interact with their significant other or spouse?
Talk about your adult child as a parent to his/her own children.
How does your adult child treat others who have more status, money, or power?
Discuss your adult child’s own dreams and ambitions. Are they similar to yours or different? Why?
