spacer spacer As Time Goes By

"Parental ambivalence about sending a child off to college, particularly a first-born, is common. The sense that family life will never be the same again, a sense of loss, even jealousy - all are likely to be missed with the anticipated satisfaction of launching one's offspring. For many parents in the midst of all the hustle and bustle of daily life, this is a period of reflection - of poignant memories about times past. For many there is a coming to terms with one's own limitations, while exploring the ever-expanding horizons of the next generation."

From Letting Go: A Parents' Guide to Understanding the College Years

Some families may be interested in finding out more about the experiences and changes their students will undergo while in college. Some students may be interested in finding out about the effect their leaving will have on family members back home. The best reference we have found to meet both these needs is the book from which the excerpt above was taken. It is very easy to read, covers the entire college experience, and serves as a useful guide for students and their families.

Letting Go: A Parents' Guide to Understanding the College Years is published by Quill and costs $13.95.
