Stay connected to your college kid
They’ve been gone for a month and while you’re starting to adjust, you still miss your new college kid like crazy. We know; it’s hard losing that day-to-day interaction. If you didn’t discuss it before drop off, decide together now how often you’ll communicate. A weekly phone call or FaceTime works great for most with the option for more if the student needs it. Texts are good for quick questions. But not every day. While you still want to be there for your child, you don’t want to be intrusive – or worse – ignored.
