Prepare Your Child – and Yourself – for
Those First Few Weeks
Separation can be strange for both parent and child. So prepare
your student – and yourself – for those first few weeks of college.
Before your child comes to Summer Orientation, start a dialogue
about the responsibility of living on campus. Ask them whether they
harbor any fears about adulthood. Encourage your child to take
intelligent risks by stepping out of their comfort zone. Above all,
assure your child that the family will always be supportive.
