What defines adulthood nowadays? Or ever? In particular when do we see our own children as adults? When they are older than we were at the age we had them? When they have children of their own? Are fully self-supporting? And what about the prematurely adult children some of us were or tried to be—where have they gone? And the lost and needy children in us? The ones whose parents just never were enough? Are they still active? And what about when our parents are failing, what is an adult to adult relationship then? And what does an adult to adult relationship really mean—especially in a society that emphasizes reinvention, not legacy? When we have been truly dependent on someone is full parity ever possible? Desirable? We invite stories, poems, memoirs and creative non-fiction that explore—with zest, angst, humor, humility, anger, love—the intricacies of these constantly mutating and, hopefully, maturing relationships between consenting, compelled, regressed, often quizzical adults who once were, as we all were, helpless and malleable and strong-willed and resilient children who had no idea, and perhaps still don’t, of all it took to raise us.
