How to Help Your Child Transition to College

He’s not ready! We’ve not prepared him. We need more time. I recall the thoughts rushing to mind last year as my husband and I prepared to release and launch our oldest child into life’s next chapter. College stood on the horizon. Joel eyed it eagerly. His father and I waited with a mix of excitement and a solid case of the jitters.

Most, if not all, parents hope to prepare their child for a smooth transition. After all, our babies are leaving the nest, flying on their own. A foundation with Christ sets the stage for life, and it’ll help a mama breathe a bit easier when her eagle flies. But, a few steps of practical preparation support the effort as well.

Here a few ideas gathered from friends, personal successes, and “learning opportunities” after things didn’t quite go as intended. So, grab this list. Use and share it well.
