It Can Be Hard for Parents to Leave Campus      
When you dropped off your kidult at college, were you the one dragging your heels? This generation of parents is often described as over-involved, especially when they linger after the dismissal bell has rung.
In fact, a number of college administrators have introduced straightforward language into parent orientation manuals. These include details about how and when to say goodbye. The message is clear: release your anxieties and your student to this adventure, and enjoy the ride yourself. The big lesson, not taught in the traditional curriculum, is about letting go. Here's practical advice for parents of college bound kids.
Some colleges have developed parents-only workshops for those who tend to micromanage their kidult's academic career. Liaisons give explicit advice about how to manage the pain of separation and minimize hovering behaviors. 'Velcro' parents are invited to a reception while the students meet their roommates and begin to settle in. Learn more here.
Does this feel like some kind of conspiracy to push you away? After all, it's almost as big a transition for you as for your offspring. But as you say goodbye, you can learn how to say hello to yourself.
Recognize that you may be ambivalent about turning the page. But you can bond with friends as you discuss your experience with those who understand what you're going through. You'll find that you have a lot in common. And you may even feel more secure as you take a first step in your own direction.

Here's a photo of us doing a reading of our new book, Whose Couch Is It Anyway, to a crowd at the Marina City Club on August 20. We had a lively question and answer session afterwards.
In September, we'll be fanning out across the country with our books in hand. If you're in the neighborhood, we'd be pleased to have you join us at any of the following events:
On September 2 (7:30 p.m.), Phyllis will be reading from and signing our book in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada at the McNally Robinson Booksellers.
Rosemary will be discussing Boomerang Kids and offering signed books for sale on September 10 (7:00 p.m.) during her presentation at the Highland Park Library in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.
On September 19 at 4:00 p.m., we'll both be appearing at the Library in Ashland, Oregon to discuss our new book, Whose Couch Is It Anyway? Moving Your Millennial.


If you would like to arrange a speaking engagement in your area or for us to visit your book club, please email us at Mentors@HerMentorCenter.com
