From time to time, we like to review some of the books available for parents of college students. There is a wealth of literature available to help parents cope with the transition to college and the changes that occur throughout the college years. We’ve created lists of recommended reading, and there is something for everyone. See our Resources and Tools page for suggestions.
College Success: Advice for Parents of High School and College Students by Bob Roth covers a lot of ground. We especially like the breadth of topics covered in this book as well as the explanation that college success begins early and is a developing process through both middle school and high school years. The author recognizes that academic success has its foundation in the readiness skills that begin early – and in the family setting.
