Kids grow up fast. Within a few years, they attend college, get jobs and move on with their lives. However, most parents struggle to deal with an empty nest and overcome the feelings of loneliness and loss. But apps make it easy to overcome the empty nest syndrome.

    • Empty nesters must stay positive and keep busy to cope with the absence of their children who’ve moved on in life. One way to keep the mind busy and positive is learning how to draw and paint. In just 30 days, you’ll be able to work on at least 4 drawings every week.

    • Now that you have a lot of extra time on your hands, you should spend it by learning something new. Learning a new language will help keep you busy while you exercise your brain at the same time. You may even plan on taking a 7-day trip to a foreign land after you become fluent in Spanish or Italian by using this app.


  • Coursera: Online courses

    Online courses in programming, music, languages and more from top universities

    Coursera, Inc.

    • Now that the kids are out of the house and either going to college or married, why not learn something new? There are over 500 courses here that you can explore. I’ve downloaded the app and I’m actually thinking of taking some courses myself. There are many courses available.

      • These fake posts are so pathetic... The advertisers could invent less obvious way to put ads of their products... Or perhaps it is done by appgrooves?
