I am a higher education professional that works directly with parents of first year students. This book should be required reading for all college parents, but especially those who are sending their first to college. So well written and organized and so much good, tangible information!
One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. This book is seriously the Holy Grail for empty nest preppers!
It helps with "senioritis" -for parents AND high schoolers as well as the first couple of years away at college. It really does wonders to ease the mind. I found this book in my local library while looking for a book to help ME through my daughter's freshman year in college. I Wish I had found it during her senior year!
I now go online and buy this book for each of my friends who have seniors who will be going away to college. One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is a great book for anyone sending their child off to college.
We sent our only child off this year and it was very difficult for me and maybe my husband, although he doesn't show it as much It DOES get easier and better but this book gives parents insight on the whole process of sending ones' child ren off on their own and letting them become independent and responsible people. I was so trepidacious about sending my child off to college.
And I work at a college! This book is great for parents that have not lived on a college campus-it explains in detail how students find things like health care and academic support, how dorm rooms are set up, and a bunch of details about what living on campus is all about and how to find support services.
I did not think it was helpful in regards to dealing with the crazy stuff in my own head about how to send my child off to college with a smile on my face. Drop off day was tough-and there was not enough in the book to help me with that. From my own experience I knew how to get my kid to find an ID and her dorm, the two things she needed the most. For parents that have not lived on a college campus, you may find this helpful. For me, I am still trying to deal with the empty nest and how to be supportive from far away. If anyone can recommend a book for a single parent of a single child, I would love to check it out.
The good news is my baby has been away for only 3 weeks, and we're both doing just fine her more than me, but that's a good thing! Getting used to the idea of this first step towards independence is hard-harder than anything else I have ever done as a parent. And I wish I knew how to prepare others for this-but it's like childbirth. No amount of reading can ever prepare you for this. This book was recommended by a college guidance counselor at my daughter's freshman college day weekend.
I would recommend this book to any parent who finds themselves with a suddenly quiet house after the long push to get kids through high school and launched into college. Lots of examples and case studies make this a lively, insightful, and interesting read. Purchased this hoping for some practical tips and techniques to help me with my kids going to college.
Instead it seems to be a complilation of alot of college students' experiences and not so much a helpful guide for parents. An awesome view of what college will be like for kids, and what to expect in the various phases of it. Tons of examples and quotes from real students, parents and educators, which helps to make it all real. Great book for new empty nesters.
