Whether it’s your first child going off to college, or if you’re like us, your last, your head might be swimming with concerns and wondering what it’s really like out there in “college land”. It’s important for parents and their college bound students to be aware so that good choices can be made.
No need to worry, there are tons of information out there to answer most of your questions or concerns. And remember, the best time for parents to have the all important “talk” with their college bound child about expectations and concerns, is before you pack them up and drop them off. Preferably, when everyone is relaxed and in a good mood. After dorm shopping or ice cream or glass of wine (for mom), always worked well for us.
