Regardless of how self-confident, unconcerned or “cool” your teen may appear, they are anxious about life at college. Even if they spent significant time at sleepaway camps, the move to college is a much bigger step. Many teens are overly focused on the friends and high school activities they will be “leaving.” Other teens have difficulty envisioning making new friends, adapting to a roommate, navigating a campus, and/or performing academically. How you support your teen can will make a difference in their transition. Are you prepared to have conversations with your teen about:
- Navigating relationships with high school friends, a boy/girlfriend, and even siblings.
- Initiating a relationship with a roommate.
- Decision-making at college with regard to new acquaintances, course work, and managing time.
- Their own selfcare including nutrition, sleep, and stress management.
- Understanding the social and academic support resources at college.
- Your changing role in their life.
If you would like help preparing for a conversation with your teen, book an initial 30-minute conversation with one of our counselors.
