Preparing child for college
My husband and I disagree with how to prepare our daughter for college. She’ll be a senior this year. Her junior year was busy, she made some life changes (left a dance group of 10 years) and also didn’t have a good year scholastically. She is very smart, but prefers social activities and then gets home and is on her phone and computer. My husband thinks we should let her struggle to learn how to deal on her own, so she’s prepared for college. I have AADD and know how important it is to schedule, make lists and coach myself… and I still fail at remembering and organization! What is the best way to prepare a 16 year old for going to college on her own in a year? And to be successful, not just survive!? Thank you.
