Sandra Wilson says: Saturday, September 26, 2015 at 7:55 pm My name is Sandra Wilson from I have tried dozens of love spells casters and had no success. I was online and came across MAMA DORA Spells. I was having an issue with my partner we have both been separated for 4 months. I thought I would try one more time. I was told by MAMA DORA that my case would be done in so little time.

Terrilynn Cook says: Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 10:13 am Empty Nest syndrome definitely affects people differently. However, it seems to hit harder for single parents. Those that are married have each other and can now live as a couple enjoying their marriage. A single parent is left with silence. I agree with others on this post that it’s not an attempt to minimize the feelings of married couples, but they do have a slight advantage. A single parent goes from Head of Household managing it all to nothing on the agenda. Connie Zacharkan says: Monday, September 14, 2015 at 3:12 pm Agree 100%! Our daughter earned an MBA very smoothly and without incident. Our son, on the other hand, is experiencing the bumpy roads as a junior in college! Just saying… Cathy Bachman says: Monday, September 14, 2015 at 4:57 am My life revolved around my children. I have five who have all gone and graduated from college. When the last one left I felt like my life was over. She was my best friend and we enjoyed each other. When you have five kids you never think that day will actually come but it. My youngest is back living with us because she just found a job and has to save money for a car, but I dread the day when she leaves again.. There is no more field hockey, soccer, swimming, etc. I miss that so much. We were very involved parents. My husband works at least 13 hours a day and when he is not working he is exhausted. I worked part time for 13, years and really disliked my job do I quit 9 months ago. I am at wits end about what to do. My best friend is my sister and she doesn’t understand because she never had children. Christine Boast says: Monday, September 14, 2015 at 4:57 am I think I felt the Empty Nest thing before my kids graduated. I got a bit depressed but, once they were pretty much on their own it was OK. They stayed in touch, 2 of them had to come back home a time or two and there was no problem with them pulling their own weight or helping around the house. They are doing well now and we get along great. Cathy Bachman says: Monday, September 14, 2015 at 4:57 am I would like to know if there are empty nesters support groups ? Veronica Thomas says: Monday, September 14, 2015 at 4:57 am At least some of these empty nesters have a spouse to share their lives with once the children leave home. What about the single parents and they have no one else one the child leaves home. I am not minimizing the impact that empty nest may have on anyone. But for married couples, at least they have each other. Tonya Weaver Bundy says: Monday, September 14, 2015 at 4:57 am I was watching your show about the empty nesters. Between my husband and I we have seven children, five of which we raised together, before we got married I was a single working mother of four boys, I was an assistant manager of an office for a large department store franchise where I did travel etc. But once we got married I was a stay home mom after we got married. I actually laughed when I was watching this because it did bring back memories, but also made me think how me and my husband handled our home. Our five children were very close in age, right now our ages are 21, 22, 23, 25, 27 so you can see they were all teenagers at one time. I enjoyed the time to be at all their activities in school during the day and after school. Our boys were into all sports and our daughter was a cheerleader. So we were a busy family but one thing we mandated was we (my husband and I) always had time alone, we would go out at least once a week alone. We took a family vacation every year but also we took a vacation with just us and no kids. Which I think helped me to adapt to them not being at home, understand out of all the children there is only one girl, so when she moved out it was hard, cause my husband taught the boys to take care of her and I as we were the queens, so when she moved out it was hard, but they kept close, then our first boy went to college which was hard for us cause we were so close. But we were excited as they were leaving, each time my husband would change the locks! We looked forward to the time we would be alone, because since we had five children our house was the neighborhood hang out, I was the mom that everyone came to. I have so much to say on this subject I would love to be on the show one day when you have a panel or something to discuss this subject. Thelma Watson says: Monday, September 14, 2015 at 4:57 am I have one son and he went off to college in 1999. At first I was upset that he was gone but I realize that I was more upset because I was just worried about how he will get along by himself. when he came home for his first visit and he began to tell me about his new friends and I saw how happy he was then I was o.k. I went back to school and got my degrees associate, bachelor, and masters. I got a new job and I was happy. I made a life for myself. Life was great. The key is finding something to make you happy besides the children. Cathy Gambrell says: Monday, September 14, 2015 at 4:57 am I’m not a hater but when you are forced to be an empty nester because your child or children have died, this story makes you want to gently slap someone into reality. And single moms , I agree with your position as well , we just have ourselves. We’ve sacrificed to get them there and now they’re gone. I understand but more sympathetic for us. The Re-Feathered Nest: Create a life of purpose, passion, design & delight says: Monday, September 14, 2015 at 4:57 am I think every one has to admit that the “Empty Nest” affects each person different. There is no wrong or right. As for the reader that references “the empty nest” due to a loss of a loved one, that is absolutely an entirely different type of empty nest. But, as for the empty nest due to the kiddos flying the coop…I think mom’s struggle with it more…and it’s of my personal opinion that moms who dive so MUCH into their kids lives that they sort of lose touch through the years with their own loves, likes, passions, hobbies, etc. may struggle the most. BUT, there is a way to conquer those feelings! There is a way to redesign and repurpose your life after the kids fly the coop! =) Related Posts “Essentialism” At Home Wednesday, Mar 22 .
