How can you make the transition to a childless household? Tips from those who have already done so:
Don't think of this as the end of a relationship with your children. It's actually the beginning of a new phase.
Remember that class you have always wanted to take? Or that hobby you wanted to pick up again? Do it now.
Give your adult child responsibility and space. Don't hover. Let him make his own decisions and allow him to learn from his mistakes.
Travel -- and not necessarily to your child's new digs.
Reconnect with friends and family.
Focus on your marriage. Schedule dates with your spouse. Renew romance.
Share your feelings and misgivings about your changing parental role with your spouse and friends.
