This is the name of an article published by Carolyn Lawrence on her blog Admissionsadvice. I think this is wonderful advice for all parents to review as they work with their students who are getting involved in the search for the right college.
“My child doesn’t seem interested in looking at colleges.”
“My child will be devastated if he doesn’t get into his top choice college.”
“My child could never be happy at a college that no one has ever heard of.”
These are just some of the stresses addressed in this article . If these sound like something you would say I strongly recommend reading Carolyn’s article to get some perspective on college admissions.
