Preparing for "back to school" isn't just limited to children in grade school. Many parents are dealing with the emotional roller coaster of their children leaving for college and no longer leaving at home every day.
Empty nest syndrome is a feeling of loneliness or depression that occurs among parents after children grow up and leave home. When a child leaves for college, the military, or just to live on his/her own, it's often difficult for a parent.
There are several stages of empty nest syndrome and not everyone is affected, but many are. Let's take look at the stages and see if you have any symptoms.
P.S. Dad can be affected too!

Empty Nest: What's Next?: Parenting Adult Children Without Losing Your Mind By Michele Howe
This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Michele Howe. The original live interview was 9/18/15.
Unlike the first eighteen years of parenting, moms and dads now take on more of an advisory role and step out of the daily hands-on instructional role. In theory, this stepping to the sidelines parenting style should lead to a simpler, less stress-free life for the parents. However, real-life parenting young adults is often much more challenging than all the earlier years put together. Combine young adult immaturity with a dangerous world, and parents frequently find themselves beset with worry, fear, and anxiety. Intellectually letting go is one thing; emotionally letting go is much more difficult, especially when the consequences are adult sized. This resource will offer parents true stories of other moms and dads who are facing the very same challenges.
