Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, Episode 15: Being Brave When Your Child Picks a Non-local School, or Going Far Away to College; How to be The Emotional Adult in The Room

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!
 
Anne (my guest) and I touched on this in my last episode – how to be the emotional adult in the room.  College is a significant change – and when they go far enough away that they can’t stop by for dinner – it is a REALLY SIGNIFICANT change. 
 
You can handle it. I know you can. Take some deep breaths, do some thought work and you’ve got this.
