Throughout parenthood, children will simultaneously impress and scare with their achievements and accolades. For example, moments of proudness are met with moments of pause when a child begins their college search process. Many parents aspire to foster their children in such a way that they’re capable of attending a university but are unprepared for the fear that envelops them when the time comes. In the times leading up to this search process, parents would otherwise need to be the most authoritative. However, as this is the beginning of their journey into adulthood, many children will insist on handling the process somewhat independently. If you believe you need assistance in learning on how to be more hands-off, but still equally as supportive, throughout your child’s college search process, please see the resource highlighted alongside this post.
