Description - HappiNest: Finding Fulfillment When Your Kids Leave Home by Judy Holland
HappiNest is the first book to present a detailed road map for navigating the spiritual and practical challenges that arise after your kids leave home. We are entering uncharted territory that is more complex and vastly different from the landscape our parents faced. We have more opportunities but also more obligations. Our young adults are taking longer to finish school, settle on careers, and become independent, requiring more support in their twenties and thirties. At the same time, our parents are living longer and needing us more. Trying to meet the demands of these surrounding generations is prompting many of us to dip into savings and postpone retirement. This book culls wisdom from interviews with more than 300 people, including psychologists, psychiatrists, sociologists, young adults, and empty nesters. It also unearths new research on today's empty nesters that has been buried in studies on aging, relationships, and young adulthood.
Creating a HappiNest takes hard work, and it is different for everyone. This book will show you how to relate better to your young adults, help them cope with obstacles they may face, and manage the household if your kids are among the one in three who "boomerang" back home. It will help you discover a renaissance in your marriage or, perhaps, handle empty nest divorce. It will show you how to cultivate friend networks and avoid suffocating your spouse. It will guide you to find new purpose and meaning after the kids leave. HappiNest will help you see the path ahead and find the hidden treasures along the way.
