CONTRASTS...in the animal kingdom species that build nests do so only to shelter the eggs that contain their offspring until they hatch. Frogs and sea turtles are DONE with their parental duties after laying eggs in a secluded nest while wasps and alligators keep their young in the nest until they're mature enough to care for themselves. For alligators it's about a year.
HUMANS spend more time with their young than nest building birds but the time does come when our young adults must learn to spread their wings and fly...off to college, get married. Parents are left with empty feelings and places in the home.
