BOOK SHELF ~ The Empty Nest


The Empty Nesters' Guide To
What's Different Now That The Kids Are Gone
Marshall J Levinson

A comical look at what it means to be an Empty Nester. The book is a humorous, tongue-in-cheek look at what does or does not happen in or around the house once teenage or young adult children (known as the Kids) are living somewhere else. They may be away attending college, in the military, or married. A delightful collection of cartoons and quips, the book describes What's different in nine various areas of the home, such as the bathroom, bedrooms, kitchen, and the laundry. The title of the amusing final chapter is The Boomerang Effect." It describes the phenomenon of grown children moving back home and offers amusing advice if you find yourself Boomeranged.

The humor in this book is enjoyed by all adults, but especially by parents of teenage and college age children. The mere mention of the term Empty Nester often brings a smile to the face of parents, particularly to those who have become, or are in the process of becoming, Empty Nesters. This describes all parents of college and high school students.
