Moms Facing the Empty Nest:
Thriving After the Kids Are Gone
A presentation and Q&A
with Midlife Empowerment Coach Hélène Stelian
I worry I’ll never find the kind of fulfillment I felt as a mother.
I’m scared that the best years of my life are behind me.
I wonder: What’s next for me?
Does any of this resonate?
Many of us—especially full-time mothers—will feel a keen sense of loss and longing when our teens leave home. We will question our role and purpose if it’s not to be caregivers to our children. Add to that common midlife struggles with aging parents, relationship problems, health concerns, and identity questions, and it’s no surprise that these middle years are low in happiness.
At this time, it will be critical for us to examine who we are, where we’ve been, and what we want out of our second half. In this talk, we delve into the challenges and opportunities of midlife, and we learn the critical steps we need to take in order not only to survive, but to thrive, in the empty nest.
