To help make the transition easier when your kids move away from home, and to avoid empty nest syndrome, make plans to travel, go back to college, move to a smaller home -- anything that keeps you busy, especially when the last one leaves. Start preparing early on, because as soon as a baby can walk, he/she wants to run. They want to do things on their own, make decisions on their own, etc. Start planning for "Mom" - BEFORE the kids are gone.
