Empty Nest Insanity
Of all the messages I saw on social media this week, this video says it all for me. A while back, I did some research on the empty nest and was floored by the number of articles, books, essays, on the topic from both men and women. Parents really do suffer when their children leave home -and, it seems, proportionately to the degree of heart and soul parents have put into their children's lives. Although Ann Pinto McCarney meant the video to be humorous, there is some real truth in it for parents and their college bound children. Or job bound children. Or life bound children. When are the parents right? And when are the kids right? Something to be explored.
