Families may feel confused around what their student is doing at college, as it may be a foreign place to them. What can family members do to help insure the success of their student?
Learn about the college process and what to expect
It can be helpful for family members to attend orientations, meet with advisors, and get to know campus resources so they can be more familiar with what their student is experiencing.
Be patient with one another
This is a learning process for everyone involved.
Remember, you are going through this for the first time. There is a learning curve, and it is important to be patient with yourselves and each other.
