"Empty nest" parents have a drop in well-being if children return
When children leave home, it is common for parents to feel the strangeness of the empty nest. But the new phase is more conducive to finding time to devote to new hobbies and amusements. A survey carried out in European countries has detected a drop in the quality of life of these parents when the children decide to return home.
The research, made by the London School of Economics, had as input a measure of quality of life that takes into account the feelings of control, autonomy, pleasure and fulfillment. The scale ranged from 12 to 48. The researchers noted an average drop of 0.8 point for those parents who had the nest empty but the children returned.
"When children leave their parents' home, marriage improves and they find a new balance, they take advantage of this stage of life, discovering new hobbies and activities, and the return of their adult children, "said Marco Tosi to The Guardian. The study used data from people over 50 from 17 European countries collected between 2007 and 2015. They wanted to assess the impacts of the growth of the "boomerang generation," which are these youngsters returning to their parents' home after living alone.
