    • Advice from Parents to Parents received 224 comments from current parents
      “Take the cues from your student. Some like more communication than others.”
      “Give them space but agree on an appropriate amount of communication time. Let them be in the driver’s seat about that as long as they are honest about it. Learn how to text if you don’t already. They will respond to it. Forget Facebook. They make fun of parents who do it.”
      “Send them little goodies in the mail now and then.”
    • Advice from Parents to Parents received 224 comments from current parents
      “As a freshman it’s important to contact students often to make sure everything is going good. I think texting is great along with a weekly phone call to check in with them. I think several visits throughout the year is good as well.”
      “Stay connected without stalking.”
      “If you have webcams on your computers, you can use Skype for video calls. It’s free on the internet. You can see them and they can see you, the house, pets. etc...”
    • Advice from Parents to Parents
      “…discuss how you will communicate with your child and how often before they go to school
      … Leave them a media of their own that they can use for communication among their friends.
      …we all need our privacy and don’t necessarily need to have each other know everything.”
      TEXT--Unlimited TEXTing Plan--Learn to TEXT--TEXTing is least interferring--TEXT often--Text! Text! Text!--TEXTing is fun, easy,
      and cool.
    • There Are a Few Parents Who Feel......
      • “I started with “if I am paying for your tuition, etc. I should have access to all your information.”
      • “Our children must allow us to be friends on internet social sites.”
      • “Threaten them that if excess drinking and bad grades happen they will be back at home in their boring room going to boring community college. My kids know this is what will happen in a split second. My husband and I will follow through with every threat and we have no problems.”
    • However, the Majority of Parents Feel
      “You have to trust that you did your job”
      “Give the kids their space”
      “Help them, do not control them”
      “Find out how they communicate”
      “Let go”
      “Find a way you like to communicate together”
      “Don’t be a helicopter parent”
      “Have an open dialogue with them as to why you want to stay in touch”
      “Don’t take everything personally”
      “Take the cues from your student”
