Sponsored: Navigating empty nest syndrome, with Lorraine Candy

Struggling with adult children leaving home for the first time? Award-winning journalist and parenting expert Lorraine Candy joins Liz on this episode of the podcast to share advice on navigating and coping with empty nest syndrome.

In this episode – brought to you in partnership with TV Licensing – Liz and Lorraine recall their own experiences of sending their adult children off to university and the emotions that came with it.

Lorraine reveals why treating your children as your ‘best friend’ isn’t helpful parenting, explains why she doesn’t allow her children to take their phones in their rooms at bedtime, and shares simple strategies she uses with her family to keep connected.

This special edition of the Liz Earle Wellbeing Show was produced as a paid partnership with TV Licensing. For helpful advice on getting a TV Licence for University as well as other checklists needed for uni life, check out tvl.co.uk/liz.
