Are you worried if one or two family members are away from home? My children are still with us as they still go to school. I imagine how I will lose them when they have to live away from home due to work or study. I don't know how the feeling will be. Will I be worried about them? Some of you may have had the experience about their children being away. If you could share it with us here, you'd be appreciated.

My siblings are all working and one is studying in the city. We are not worried that much now. They go home during weekends. Thank God they are always safe in the city

Our sons moved out of home soon after they finished their schooling. We saw them quite often until one moved to Melbourne (four hours flight away) and the other went overseas to eventually settle in ireland (23 hours away). As we get older it can be saddening to think they are so far away. It will get worse as we get older and unable to travel easily.

Here I can feel that parents cannot forget their children although they are now living independently. Thank for sharing.

I think it is normal to feel worried if the family members are not around and lived in another place. At the moment, my younger sister is working in the capital of my country.

Your kids look like they truly care for each other. I've never sent kids to college.

my teenager had lived away from us two years ago. She had to study her degree and work at the same time in Singapore, so we had to let her go. It is sad and missed her a lot. But, fortunately, Singapore is near to Malaysia, she comes back every weekends

That is not a problem. You are lucky she is not too far away.

Only my brother lives with my parents. The three of us (and my 2 sisters) live far from my parents. We've been living far from them since college. I get worried of my parents but make it a point to talk to them and go home once in a while.

I understand parents' feeling toward their children.

Well, it is always hard when someone leaves the nest for the first time. Yes there are usually tears of Sorrow knowing you will miss them, but also tears of joy as they get ready to start their New adventure.
