Are you about to send your child off to college? Or are you anticipating that time in the near future? Author Carol Kuykendall is back for the second episode of this special two-part series where we discuss the joyful and complicated nature of letting go of our children as they move through the teen years and into college.
Starting with high school graduation, we talk about lowering expectations, and how to make your child feel celebrated and loved. We then move to the much-anticipated college drop off: how we can set it up for success, how and how not to say goodbye, and what each college student needs from their parent during this time. Having spoken and written about this topic for decades, Carol offers timeless wisdom and sound perspective.
We know that this can be a vulnerable and difficult season for parents. The sisterhood is with you!
