Is the empty nest on the horizon? A little closer than you’re ready for?

Are you in the throes of letting go and trying to navigate a new normal?

Do you have some out of the nest and some still at home?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’ll want to listen to Episode 8 of the No More Perfect Podcast!

Letting go is one of the hardest parts of parenting. We’re so accustomed to calling the shots in our kids lives–after all we’ve done that for 18 years–that letting them go is particularly difficult.

In this episode we explore six things every empty nest parent needs to let go of:

  1. Empty nest parents now belong to the keep it shut club.Expectations
  2. Opinions
  3. Traditions
  4. Our child’s problems
  5. Our own idols
  6. Guilt

If you’re an “empty nest” or “close to the empty nest” parent, listen in!

If you’re not an empty nest parent, can you share this with someone who is?
