The College Parent Central Podcast is one year old! During this year, we’ve explored a range of key topics for college parents. In this episode Lynn and Vicki reflect on how the College Parent Central podcast began and where the journey has led throughout this most unusual year. This episode explores some of the core themes that can help parents feel less overwhelmed as they embrace their new college parent role. Join the hosts as they reflect on the past year and preview a new season of the podcast in 2021.
In this episode, we take some time to look back at the past year (and what a year it was!) and to reflect about what we’ve covered in our first thirty episodes. Vicki and Lynn both share their stories about “how it all began,” and talk about some of their favorite and most popular episodes.
We hope this episode will entice you to go back and listen to some of the episodes you may have missed – or to re-listen to some that may be more relevant to your needs now.
If you’d like to find descriptions and links to all thirty of this year’s episodes, you can find them here.
As we mentioned in the episode, if you need some fireside reading this winter, you can check out episode #020 – Favorite Summer Reads (they work as well by the fire as they do at the beach) or check out our full list of recommended books for a wider assortment. This list has some books you might share with your student as well.
If you’re a high school parent wondering how you can help your student prepare for success in college, you might consider our e-book, 60 Practical Tips for Using the High School Years to Prepare for College Success. There’s more to college prep than the application process, and getting an early start is important.
