It’s that time of year again: finals season. You probably know this from conversations with your student(s) about due dates and paper lengths. They may be stressed because of course exams and lab reports all piling up. Finals can be challenging for even the toughest students so why not send them a little boost of support and love during this trying time? Here’s why care packages are the best ways to show them you believe in them.
Sending your child off to college can be an emotional time for everyone involved. As a parent, it can be especially hard to get into a routine of not having the student around. Setting boundaries and establishing rituals is important in maintaining healthy relationships with college-aged kids. Here’s how you can determine how often you should check in based on your student’s personality or situation.
The first day of school can be an emotional time for any parent. But when it comes to sending your kids off to college for the first time (or for their senior year), the stakes can seem much higher. Dealing with empty nesting and worrying about how your child will do when they are no longer under your care is never easy. However, you can address your fears, anxieties, and worries with several simple coping methods and strategies.
If there’s one thing that is universally true of college students, it’s that there’s nothing better than receiving a care package. Care packages, especially for freshmen going off to their first residence halls or apartments, are a great way to send a little love and support. These freshman-inspired gifts are the best way to show you’re thinking of them.
