Move-in Day is an important day and marks the end of the ups and downs of that roller-coaster summer between high school and college. But Move-in Day can be complicated to navigate. In this episode Lynn and Vicki discuss how parents can prepare for Move-in, get it started on the right foot, help their student settle in and finally how to take your leave at the end of the day.

Every family is different, but there are some things that most of us will experience.
