Unlike other college guides targeted at students or about the admissions process, "Letting Go" is a compassionate, practical and up-to-the-minute self-help handbook for parents dealing with the confusing and conflicting emotions of watching their children go off to college. Using many anecdotes from students, teachers and administrators on the lines, the chapters lead parents through the transitional period from junior year of high school to senior year of college. The authors explain the mind-set of today' s college students and what their hopes and fears are and offer parents help in figuring out when to encourage their child' s independence and when to come to the rescue. With all-new sections on campus life, as well as the latest facts on the Internet and its impact on the admissions process, academics and student life, this is a must-have guide for every concerned parent.
