What suggestions do you have for today’s PARENTS as they face the high school-to-college transition? I think the main thing would be to not worry. The transition for a student from high school to college can be scary both socially and academically, but give it time and everything will work out. It’s common for your first semester grades to not be as good as usual, so parents, don’t worry because your child will get them back to normal.
