This review offers a perspective on a book authored specifically for the parents of college students. Beyond providing some context to the experience of attending college, this book offers strategies for preparing yourself for your student's transition.

Don’t try to cover them all at once, but try to touch on some of these topics as you both prepare. Not only will you learn some things about your student, but they may learn some things about you as well.
