This is a great book, one which I plan to purchase for my sisters as their kids get to be seniors in high school. I've read it three times and always get something else from it. Even though my 2 boys are totally different in personality this book addresses passages they have both had. It also addresses the pain parents may experience as their young adults go off to their new lives and how it is to have them briefly return for vacations and summer. I felt as if a friend were comforting me as I went through this exciting yet difficult time.

It came at the most opportune time. My second granddaughter is just ready to attend Syracuse University and has been going through all the throes of being filled with apprehension. My daughter is also facing the feeling of being exasperated with her. The unique list at the end of each chapter called Remedies is fantastic. I read the book quickly so I could share it with my family. EMPTY NEST... FULL HEART is an exciting book with clearly defined remedies for conflict between parents and young people as they get ready to try their own wings. I know that everyone who reads it will be thankful.

My only child is leaving for college this fall. I am floundering with the struglle of how to help and when to get out of the way. I keep going back and reading parts of this book for guidance and reassurance. Great stories about families that have been there help me feel like it will work out okay. Specific advice on what to do. Thanks for the help Andrea !

As an administrator of a very diverse school and mother of a college freshman, I found this book warmly expresses the commonality of all our experiences.
