The Empty Nest by Celia Dodd

Every year parents have to deal with the challenges of seeing their offspring fly the nest. It’s one of the most heart wrenching phases of parenting, often creating feelings of loss, lack of purpose and crisis of identity that can lead to depression. Yet it receives little recognition. Contrary to popular opinion it doesn’t only affect women who’ve put their careers on hold: working mothers and fathers suffer too. Equally, it can be a period of liberation and discovery of new challenges when marriages long overstressed by childcare can be rejuvenated.

The Empty Nest includes case studies documenting a wide range of experiences of parents living through an empty nest; expert comment and advice; plenty of practical ideas, inspiration and tips. This encouraging, empowering books helps you to focus on the positive as well as how to handle the changing relationship with your children to ensure a fulfilling and good relationship going forward, an area of parenting often ignored.
