Nester definitions

One of the big topics since we are now in August and still have restrictions in many states is adult children who are still home or back at home due to college or work closures.

I thought the use of these terms and their definition would be helpful.

Let’s start with quasi-empty nester. Quasi: Seemingly; apparently but not really. A parent whose children have grown up, but not moved away from home.

You’ve heard the term empty nester before, but what actually is an empty nester you ask? It is defined as a parent whose children have grown up and moved away from home.

Boomerangs. Adult children who move back to their parent’s home, causing them to no longer be empty nesters.

When I was in this season of life, I didn’t know it was called the “sandwich generation”. It’s those who have a living parent age 65 or older and are either raising a child under age 18 or supporting a grown child.

Being a part of the sandwich generation can cause stress, financial hardship, and/or depression.

We will be exploring these different groups.
