Empty nest syndrome is a psychological phenomenon that refers to the feelings of sadness, grief, and loss experienced by parents when their children leave home to live independently.

While experiencing empty nest syndrome is a normal response to a significant life transition, it's essential to address and manage these emotions in a healthy way.
