AAAA- how many children do you have and did you ever have to help them make a transition in life similar to  this?

Sorry, His_child.  Guess I missed your question...I'll answer it now.

I don't have any children right now, as I am only 19 and still in college.  However, I can speak from my experience as a child and how my parents helped me through similar transitions.

I just completed my freshman year of college at a university in the south (900 miles from my home).  Right in the Bible Belt of America, it was quite a culture shock to me.  However, my parents helped me by keeping in constant contact with me, sending me packages in the mail, and visiting once or twice throughout the year.  I had very bad roommate issues and other complications but things eventually got better and I'm now grateful I had the experience - it helped make me more independent.

I guess the key to important transitions like college or public school is just to keep talking to your kids and help them whenever you can.  Don't make decisions or solve problems FOR them, but help them talk their way through it.  

Again, good luck!

with love,
~AAAA

Well fortunately for me she won't be 900 miles away yet.  Wink

She has had her sights set on a college for about 2 years now. She wants to be a music major. However, we still have a few years to go before she gets to that.
