Parenting is hard work. Those of us who have been parents for a while know how difficult it can be. And as parents, we sometimes seek advice from the “experts,” whether those experts are our friends, our own parents, our medical providers, our counselors, or the authors who write books. Remember reading all those books before your baby was born?
We all need a little advice – and a little perspective.
There are lots of great books (and blogs like this one!) out there to help parents as they approach and live through the college admission process and the college years. We’ve reviewed more than thirty of them and we think many of them provide parents important guidance and food for thought. You can read some when your student heads to college, but we suggest that you start even earlier. Many of these books help you help your child to start laying the foundation for future success.
So we’re offering a summer reading list of our current top ten favorite books. Start here. Click on the titles to read our reviews. Pick the ones that speak to you. Read one or two or three. Share them – with a friend or with your student. Form a book club. Start conversations.
