There are many ways our teenage children enter adulthood. Some stay at home, some do a gap year, some go off to college and some do a combination of these things. Do you have conflicting feelings about your teenager’s transition to adulthood? Do you alternate between the exhilaration of seeing them spread their wings, concern about their future and question how to address that changes in your life? Is your “nest” not as empty as you thought it might be at this point?
If you want to explore the challenges and opportunities of this new phase in your life, please join our monthly discussion group. We will share where we’re at in the process of parenting an (almost) adult child, seek support from one another and from our faith and share our hopes and thoughts about the future.
The first gathering will be on Monday, October 15 at 7pm in the Plymouth Room. If you are interested, even if you are not able to attend the first gathering, please email MPUC member Sigi Leonard, an empty nester herself and a recently retired professor, who will facilitate the group.
