Your college student may be living at home out of choice or out of necessity. Whether they are taking fully online classes or commuting to campus, your role as a college parent changes and will require some new thinking and communication skills. In this episode Vicki and Lynn discuss some of the problems students living home may encounter and how to support your student in their transition. As you and your student continually re-evaluate your living situation and roles, you have the opportunity to establish lasting and rewarding ways of being together as adults.
With so many colleges choosing to offer their fall courses online, more and more parents will be parenting their college students living at home.

In this episode, we try to help parents anticipate some of the issues that may come up as well as think about how they can best support their college student under their roof.
