Dr. Lynn Zlotkowski, Director of Advising at Southern New Hampshire University first joined us in episode #061 to talk about Advising and Student Success. We know that no matter how much support students receive from their parents and their college, no matter how much they take advantage of the college resources, some students flounder and fail. In this episode, we asked Dr. Zlotkowski to help us understand some of the reasons students struggle and how parents can respond and help them. Lynn shared her down-to-earth wisdom and advice that will help parents better support their student.

We had such a rich and informative conversation with Dr. Lynn Zlotkowski, Director of Advising at Southern New Hampshire University in Episode #61, that we invited her back to continue the conversation.
In the previous episode, we discussed Academic Advising and how parents and the college can work in tandem to support students. In this episode, we focus on students who are struggling – those likely to be suspended or dismissed and who might need to take a break from college. This is such a difficult situation for both students and their parents.
We’ve had the privilege of watching Lynn work with students and families, and we knew she was just the person to share her wisdom and advice for how parents can help their students navigate this situation. We weren’t wrong. Lynn reminded us that it’s OK to fail and that it is rarely an indication of lack of intelligence or ability. So many other factors get in the way of student success. She also talked about some of the signs parents can watch for and how to guide students through their time away from school.
If you think your student might be struggling, you need to listen to this episode. If you know someone else with a struggling student, please share this episode.
In case you missed it, be sure to go back and listen to our first conversation with Dr. Zlotkowski –
Lynn and Vicki also mentioned a couple of books that parents may find helpful.
