As parents, we like to think that no one knows our children as well as we do.  But as our children become adolescents and then emerging adults and adults, we may not know them as well as we think we do.  This may have less to do with our relationship with our child (this generation of emerging adults has closer relationships with parents than earlier generations), and more to do with the special characteristics of Millennials and Emerging Adults.
