#512 Leaving the Nest with GizzA Creations





I never understood the concept of Empty Nest syndrome, but of late have been listening to friends and family of what it means and how it affects both the family and the child.
Your first kiss. Your first love. Your first child. Your first … adult child moves out? I am sure that would be scary for both the child who is whooping for joy and ready to face life and the parent/s who think what am I going to do now.


I understand there are five family life cycles:
  1. Independence from your parents
  2. Settling down with a partner
  3. Becoming a parent to your own children
  4. Launching your adult children into their own independence stage
  5. and then your retirement years
When children-turned-young-adults begin to move out of the family home, parents may find themselves deciding not only what to do with the spare bedroom, but also what to do with themselves.

Empty nest syndrome, sometimes known as the post-parental period, isn't a medical condition. It can be a combination of separation anxiety, sadness, satisfaction and possibility -- maybe with a dash of adventure thrown into the mix. And just like the family life cycle, it too has stages, although they're less defined. Life can be full of unexpected changes, but transitioning from full house to empty nest is one that all parents know will eventually come. Learning how to embrace your newly empty nest is just one part of the journey of parenthood. Children leaving home can change you just as bringing home your first child once did.  Often, though, it's the anticipation of children leaving home that's worse than the reality of the empty nest.



 It is a new life for both the child and the parent as you watch them from afar. Children leaving the nest is hardly the end -- it's not the end of being a parent or the end of your relationship with your kids. Its knowing that you have done your best as a parent and that child is on their own with your support and love.
