85. Is the empty nest experience different for parents of multiples?

The empty nest phase can be difficult for any parent but is especially difficult for parents of higher-order multiples since the majority of multiple births are the only children in the household. A multiple birth family goes from bursting at the seams to completely silent. Just the anticipation of this transition can be very distressing.




To help families parenting multiple adolescents through this phase as well as face an empty nest, MOST has a support forum for members with a child 10 years or older called Teens & Tweens (Double Digits).
