Research Shows That Parents Still Worry About Their Kids Even When They’re All Grown Up

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

If you have children, you might have once thought that when they grow up, you would stop having sleepless nights worrying about them. It seems normal to worry about a baby, a child, and especially a teenager who might try to stay out all night long. But, why do parents still worry excessively about their adult children?

Studies have shown that parents going through empty nest syndrome, when an adult child first leaves home, are more likely to have sleepless nights. While most think about mothers worrying, the study showed that fathers worried just as much.

via GIPHY

It can be difficult to transition to a childless home. A parent might go from a phase where they saw and talked to their child every day to the child moving out and the parent worrying about what they are doing. Parents might worry about their child getting into trouble, dangerous situations, having enough food and money, etc.

via GIPHY

The parents may also feel lonely and struggle to transition to a household that includes only the married couple. Research also showed that the parents who were perhaps overly involved in the children’s lives suffered from empty nest syndrome the most.

via GIPHY

If you find yourself struggling with empty nest syndrome, know that it is completely normal. You will always worry and miss your child, no matter how old they get. This is again, completely normal! There are several things you can do to relieve this stress and help yourself transition.

via GIPHY

The most important thing you can do is to take care of yourself. Celebrate the fact that you no longer have to take care of your children in the same way. They can now take care of themselves and are more financially and physically independent. Now is the time to exercise, eat well, and do more things for yourself.

What is something you’ve always wanted to try but felt like you didn’t have enough time? Start a new hobby, volunteer, or simply go out and do things that you like to do like seeing a movie, shopping, or spending time with friends.

via GIPHY

If you find yourself struggling and self-care, writing down your thoughts, or talking to friends and family aren’t helping, you might want to see a therapist to help you during this transition period. This can be especially helpful if you find yourself very sad, not just worried. A therapist can give you specific coping methods or even help you with your relationships with your children or significant other.

via GIPHY

Once you start to keep busy, you will likely feel better about your transition. This can be an exciting time and also a fun time to watch your relationship grow into more of a friendship with your adult children.

If you found this article informative, please SHARE with your friends who might be dealing with empty nest syndrome!

We are where nostalgia lives

Inspire Brands, the parent company of Arby’s is going to be buying Sonic. It will be purchasing the burger chain for $2.3 billion at $43.50 per share. Sonic is mostly known for their burgers and quirky menu items that loyal customers love so much and there are more than 3,600 locations in the Unied States.

While the chain will continue to operate as an independent brand outside of the Oklahoma headquarters, they will now be provided under a different company. Inspire Brands was actually formed by Arby’s earlier this year when they acquired Buffalo Wild Wings under its wing. With more than 8,000 locations under Inspire Brands, combined system sales are exceeding $12 billion.

Inspire Brands issued a statement on the addition of Sonic.

“We’re excited to build on Sonic’s momentum as we leverage our combined expertise and capabilities to better serve guests, further support team members and franchisees and drive long-term growth,” they said.

“This value-maximizing transaction validates the actions we have taken over the last year to grow traffic and improve sales while delivering differentiated offerings and superior guest service. Our Board of Directors, taking into account the views of shareholders, conducted a comprehensive review of a wide range of strategic options to maximize shareholder value. This transaction delivers significant, immediate and certain value to Sonic shareholders, and the private ownership structure will provide important benefits to our guests, franchisees and employees.”

The agreement of the addition to Sonic under Inspire Brands was unanimously agreed on by Sonic’s Board of Directors. The agreement represents a premium of 19% per share to Sonic’s closing stock price on September 24, 2018, and a premium of 21% to Sonic’s 30-day volume-weighted average price, according to Business Wire.

Sonic has racked up a total revenue of $606.320 million since 2016 and it continues to climb. Arby’s is mostly known for their catchy slogan “We Have The Meats”, which can be seen and heard on television commercials everywhere. The foods they are best known for are their slow roasted roast beef, turkey, and premium Angus beef sandwiches. Arby’s has racked up $1.2637 billion in revenue, so it’s no wonder Inspire Brands wants to team up with Sonic to create even more joint success.

Inspire Brands is actually a relatively new company that was formerly Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. They were founded in February of this year and already have Arby’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, Rusty Taco and Sonic Drive-In under their wing and their headquarters reside in Atlanta, GA.

With Sonic joining this new, powerful branding company, it will be no surprise when other fast-food chains begin to work under Inspire Brands.

10 Things Only People Who Grew Up In The ’70s Will Relate To

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

If you’re someone who grew up in the 1970s, this one’s for you. The 70s was a notorious time for growing out your hair really big and jamming to some disco tunes. There is so much more to the 70s than big hair and music though.

The 70s was an iconic time for many different things in life from home decor, to clothing, to magazines. It’s as simple as playing with your friends outside until dark with no worry or pet rocks still being a thing that everyone did! Here are 10 things only people who grew up in the 70s will remember. Cue the nostalgia.

1. Playing your Atari console

Atari was really the first console that started the whole ‘gaming console’ trend. It’s what paved the way for today’s PlayStation and Xbox.

2. Running your hands through your parents’ shag carpet

Carpets in Dalton

Shag carpets were the best and comfiest places to sit when it was time to watch some TV with the family. Some would argue it’s still the best place to sit, that is if you’re a 70s kid.

3. Staying up late to watch some of the first SNL episodes ever

Back when Chevy Chase was just trying to make a living and Saturday Night Live wasn’t considered a household TV show just yet. My, how times have changed!

4. Having a huge crush on David Cassidy

If you grew up watching The Partridge Family, you remember how dreamy David Cassidy was. That smile!

5. Sporting a color-changing mood ring

Mood rings are still a thing, but back then we’re sure people took them pretty seriously. Whether your mood ring was blue, green, or even black meant serious business.

6. Getting some additional education through Schoolhouse Rock!

This cartoon was super educational and fun. Who remembers the song Conjunction Junction?

7. Mastering the Connect Four game

The Connect Four game officially came out in 1981, but the actual publication date was 1974. This gave 70s kids enough time to really master the art of Connect Four.

8. Flipping through the latest issue of Tiger Beat magazine

Your dreamiest heartthrobs of the time were featured on the cover of Tiger Beat, making every latest issue the best one. It’s still a huge pop culture magazine icon to this day and has been going since 1965.

9. Having a pet rock

Why have a pet dog or a pet goldfish when you can have a pet rock? They didn’t need to be fed or bathed. They basically do nothing so they make for the best pet. Why did we stop?

10. Watching your mom fill the house with macrame decor

If you didn’t have a macrame item in your household, you didn’t live in the 70s properly. These knotty little designs were the perfect way to really cozy up a home.

Bill Cosby Has Been Sentenced To Prison Amid Sexual Assault Conviction

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

It has been reported that Bill Cosby has been officially sentenced to prison after his sexual assault conviction. The judge ruled that the 81-year-old will be classified as a “sexually violent predator”. He will serve 3 to 10 years in a Pennsylvania state prison.

According to TMZ, the judge said, “I’m not permitted to treat him any differently based on who he is or who he was. As she [Constand] said, Mr. Cosby, you took her beautiful, healthy young spirit and crushed it.” He told Constand, “I heard the very clear impact on your life.”

Additionally, Cosby’s name will appear on a sex-offender registry, which will then be sent out to neighbors and schools. He is also required to undergo a lifetime of counseling and reporting to authority is mandatory. He will essentially be under constant supervision for the rest of his life, however much may be left.

Court prosecutors released Andrea Constand’s full victim impact statement, which details her entire encounter with Cosby.

*Warning: The statement you are about to read may contain graphic material. Please read at your own risk.*

Part of her statement read, “I had just given my two-month notice at Temple when the man I had come to know as a mentor and friend drugged and sexually assaulted me. Instead of being able to run, jump, and pretty much do anything I wanted physically, during the assault I was paralyzed and completely helpless,” says the athlete, “I could not move my arms or legs. I couldn’t speak or even remain conscious. I was completely vulnerable, and powerless to protect myself.”

Constand describes the aftermath of the assault in a somber tone. She reveals that she never married and lives alone. She describes the time as ‘a very dark and lonely place’ after the encounter, noting that even after what happened, she still had to work with Cosby at the Temple University athletic department.

“The sound of his voice over the phone felt like a knife going through my guts. The sight of the man who drugged and sexually assaulted me coming into the basketball office filled me with dread,” she recalled.

Cosby will be facing approximately 10 years in prison for 3 sexual assault convictions. There is a word that the judge can go as light as just probation as means of long-term punishment. Prosecutors are arguing this light means of punishment, stating that a simple house arrest would put Cosby in the ‘lap of luxury’.

His trial lasted 13 days, including the testimony from Constand and 5 other women who all claim they were drugged and sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby at one point.

Bill Cosby’s original trial back in 2017 ended in a mistrial due to 2 not-guilty holdouts from the jury.

According to witnesses at the courthouse, Cosby had to empty his pockets and took off his tie before he went into custody. He is being immediately remanded and locked up post-trial.

Earlier this year, M&Ms unveiled three new flavors and allowed fans to vote for their favorite new M&M. The new flavors were Crunchy Espresso, Crunchy Raspberry and Crunchy Mint. Each flavor was made with dark chocolate. Crunch Raspberry featured a regular rice crisp center, while the other two featured a cocoa rice crisp center.

All three flavors were available for purchase from April 1 until May 25. During this time, fans could vote for their favorite once per day. Fans ended up choosing Crunchy Mint as the winner and that flavor is now available for purchase for a limited time. We wonder how long it will be available. Rumors are it tastes just like a Girls Scout Thin Mint cookie. Do you agree?
