There are many sources of challenges students face as they navigate their college careers, but sometimes the challenges may be of their own making. Sometimes, students seem to undermine themselves by making assumptions or restricting their choices. These students may need help from someone to get out of their own way. As a college parent, you may be able to help your student move forward more successfully.
Most students eventually succeed in college in spite of bumps and potholes along the way. For some students the transition may be more difficult than others, some students may struggle academically, some may have challenges socially, and others face personal difficulties. For a lucky few, the transition goes smoothly, academics are workable and personal and social life come together.
