There’s a certain rhythm to a college semester – and to the year as a whole, and different times in the semester call for different conversations with your student. In this episode Vicki and Lynn walked through the college year and talked about some of the important touchpoints when parents can focus their conversations with their students.  Knowing what is going on for your student will help you better support them.

We already have full episodes that cover and dig deeper into some of the touchpoints we discuss in this episode. If something intrigues you, check out these more flesh-out episodes.
