Telephone Calls: Your Student’s Chance to
Every parent receives at least one of those “nothing’s going
right” telephone calls. So don’t worry. In challenging times (a
quarrel with a roommate, a low mark on a test, a flat tire),
students often feel safest expressing their frustration with a call
home. The best thing is to be understanding and patient: though
miles may separate you, you’ll be providing the same sympathetic
ear you did at home.
