It’s natural for students to struggle with college work. The problem we see isn’t the struggle or challenge, it is that students don’t always ask for the help they need. Colleges work hard to make sure students know about the resources available, so why don’t more students make use of them? In this episode, Lynn and Vicki explore some of the reasons students may be reluctant to get help and how parents can encourage their student to recognize and advocate for what they need.

Sometimes, as college professors, we’re particularly frustrated when we see students who clearly need help of some sort but just don’t seem to be able to ask for that help. It prompted us to think about what’s going on – and how parents might help students. In this episode we talked about the problem, why students don’t get the help they need, and how parents can support them – remembering parents are on the sidelines at this point.
