The Empty Nest

The Empty Nest

31 Parents Tell the Truth About Relationships, Love, and Freedom After the Kids Fly the Coop

A heartwarming, wry, and often surprising collection of essays about the next rite of passage for Baby Boomers: what happens when the kids leave home As the baby boom generation ages — the oldest are now turning sixty — many of them are learning to deal with a whole new way of life, after the last child has finally moved out and they are, once again, alone. It’s the same milestone their own parents faced, but as with so many other markers, this generation approaches it in a whole new way. In this fascinating collection, journalist Karen Stabiner has assembled essays from thirty-one writers about their own experience with the empty nest. Parents whose children left home last week join those with grandchildren to explore how life changes once the offspring leave (unless, of course, they move back in again later). They represent the full range of experience — from traditional nuclear families to single parents to gay parents to grandparents — with humor, grace, and poignancy.
