TEXT TOPIC: Parents who have kids leaving for college: Advice

What advice do you have for parents that have a kid or kids leaving for college? 

I have a daughter that''s a senior in high school right now. I''ve had a really rough time all year thinking that she is going to grow up and move on with her life. I guess the only thing that gets me through it is knowing that I turned out all right ha ha. You just have to love them and keep open communication with them talk a lot to them and let them know that you love them so that they will always feel comfortable to come home and be around you.

get to know yourself, you've put yourself on hold for 18 yrs. find a new hobby join a club and defiantly exercise it will help with depression or feeling of loss

You have to accept that they are going but plan vacations or getaways for when they are on school breaks. That way you have something to look forward to and makes the situation a bit more fun.

my daughter moved away to South Carolina it was sad for me but I just reminded myself it wasn''t about me it was about her and her next adventure. And I must have done something right for her to be able to do that

I'm having a really hard time with my daughter leaving and moving to Idaho - Kylee do you have any advice for BYU Idaho

when I moved out my mom started a bunch of new hobbies. Gym classes, ukulele, volunteering, etc. She made so many new friends and was so happy and busy with them.

accept that they'll be making their own choices let the control go

gone thru his twice with my oldest girls. Super difficult (more for me) but we always like to plan for fun activities throughout the year where we can see

 it’s hard sending them off. I have one who’s been at college for 2 years and one heading off this fall. All you can do is keep the lines of communication open and hope they make good decisions
