Your New Roles with an Empty Nest – Michele Howe

Michele Howe describes the joys and sorrow of entering the empty nest years; how surprised she was by grief when her son went off to college, despite the fact two daughters left home before him. She discusses the transitions parents have to go through to establish a new identity when their primary parenting role is over, and why they need to refocus on their marriage. Michele also talks about appropriate boundaries with adult children to return to live with their parents. In addition, she describes the many difficult years of dealing with a prodigal daughter who went through a downward spiral of partying, drinking, and crime.

Michele and her husband had to practice “tough love” and firm boundaries until their daughter turned her life around. A common theme for this interview is trusting the Lord for life circumstances which are out of your control.
