Parents Prep for College


As we enter the latter half of the summer, and my graduating seniors prepare to depart for college, parents are preparing for that day in your own ways.  Some parents are going into mourning, while others are doing a little happy dance.

I came across this feature in the Boston Globe, which gives some perspective on how parents are preparing for the transition from high school to college.

Parents:  think back to when you left for college.  Did your parents drive you there, or did they (like mine) just put you on a plane and wave goodbye?

How often did you call home?  How often did your parents call you?

Feel free to leave a comment.  Enjoy the rest of the summer!
