My current passion is guiding discerning parents through the "failure-to-launch" epidemic that keeps their kids living at home indefinitely.
While it's convenient to blame the economy... my professional experience is that this excuse predictably deprives teens and young adults from the autonomy, accountability, self-reliance, and resilience needed to thrive, while discovering and living-out their soul purpose here on earth.
This film, "But...MOM!" is my way of drawing attention to this simultaneously comedic and tragic dynamic so that parents can know they are not alone and that practical and powerful solution is available right here, right now. For their child’s sake.
Filming and editing was done by my nineteen year old friend, Jesse Young, a film major at Hofstra University, who is inspirational in his already tenacious independence and his notable traction toward realizing his dream of being a professional film director.
Finally, it was a labor of love for me to cast and direct my dear friends Pinky Adubato and Gene Goellner! Laughing together is so vital.
