About the Book

Raising children is not all it’s cracked up to be.

20 years after the first edition of Raising Adults, Jim Hancock says, "There aren’t too many projects I’ve worked on that still hold up two decades later. I think this one, Raising Adults, may be stronger today than the day it was released."

Raising Adults scrutinizes the ways successive generations come to see their place in the world … bulldozes generational assumptions about growing up … and constructs a common space where parents, kids, and grandkids can learn to treat each other the way they want to be treated. Raising Adults is about:

- Starting from where we are, not where we should be

- Deepening self-awareness

- Do-overs — both getting and giving them

- Replacing toxic habits with sustainable, life-giving practices

- Doing everything we can for as long as we can to love and appreciate every unique child and parent

Do you want to raise children, or adults? Pick one.

About the Author

Jim Hancock lives and works among tall trees and blackberry brambles just north of Seattle, writing books, developing digital movie projects and designing content as proprietor of The Tiny Company Called Me

Back in the day, he logged most of a decade in the film + video industry working on the groundbreaking EdgeTV series. Before that he spent two decades as a youth worker during which he acquired the foundation for a lot of what he writes about today. Before that, school… sports… working weekends in a fish market, then summers in a college bookstore… the usual.

Besides projects for which he is solely to blame, Jim Hancock has happily collaborated on books, movies, live events, and non-formal learning curricula with Brennan Manning, Kara Powell, Rich Van Pelt, Todd Temple, Jim Henderson, Compassion, Youth Specialties, International Justice Mission….
