In brief: Kids are loved

And times are tough.
Many are stuck between college graduation and first job / graduate school. Parents still live in same house, and it is easier to move back home. Parents miss the kids, and wish the kids have not left. Often it is win-win for both parents and kids, until kids move on to next stage of their life. Sometimes that never happens, which can be ok too. There is no single best path.
