We’ve been talking about how you can prepare yourself — and your son or daughter — for college.
Laurie L. Hazard, a psychology professor in Rhode Island, says there is much that parents can do to help their sons and daughters. However, one of the most significant things is to pass along some important messages that will help when he/she gets to campus.
Recognize that you don’t know everything. Be modest and respectful.
Ask for help
Don’t be shy about asking for help if you need it. There are many people on campus who are there to help you.
Try something you’ve never done before. You may find you have a talent or skill you never knew you had.
Be open to change
You’ll likely find that your high school study habits won’t work for college. Be willing to change so you can succeed.
You’re the only one who can make your first year in college a success. If it doesn’t turn out that way, you’re the only reason why.
Any other suggestions anyone?
