#036 — What’s On Your Mind? Answering Some of Your Questions

In this episode Vicki and Lynn answer some of the questions that have come to College Parent Central. Topics include how to start the college search, access to student academic information (FERPA), what to do when your student is unhappy, and dealing with remote learning fatigue. We don’t have all of the answers, but we share some suggestions based on our professional and personal experience.

We did something a little different in this episode.  Instead of choosing a specific topic to discuss, we decided to answer some of the parent questions that have come to us through the podcast and this website.  We even had a question from a student!

Our topics were wide-ranging, but we touched upon how to begin the college search, FERPA and parental access to academic information, dealing with COVID isolation, and what to do if your student has what you consider a “bad professor.”

These are such important questions, and we had a rewarding time exploring them. We wanted to do more, but ran out of time, so we’ll do another episode like this soon.

If you have a question you’d like to hear us discuss, please leave a comment here or email us at podcast@collegeparentcentral.com. We’ll get to as many as we can!\

If you’d like to explore any of these topics further, here are some articles that may help.
