Set Them Straight on a Pathway of Learning
The high school graduate has reason to be proud of the past four years while also feeling excited about the start of a brand new journey: college. For many young people, going away to college is the first time they will venture outside the haven of the family home. They likely will have a sense of anticipation as well as some apprehension about what lies ahead.
Provide that special college-bound person in your life with words of encouragement, inspiration, and love. Your warm wishes will be welcoming reminders of home at a time when your loved one needs them the most.
This “milestone timeline” will help your college-bound loved one know that you care:
