Charlie and Nancy have three kids. The kids are all old enough that they require less supervision and direction from Charlie and Nancy. As a result, Nancy and Charlie have more time to enjoy other activities around the house, such as reading and woodworking. What stage in the family life cycle are Charlie and Nancy enjoying?
- Empty nest one
- Full nest one
- Full nest two
- Full nest three
Hint: As children age, they require less parental supervision and direction, taking on their busy lives. Child care shifts to adults outside of the family and parents have more time to devote to the traditional workday, which becomes more flexible.
