‘Twas the night before move-in day…

‘Tis the season! You know…the one where parents of first time college students are both excited and terrified at the same time. Where we are thrilled they have the opportunity to grow their minds and attend institutions of higher learning, yet worry that they won’t know how to do their own laundry. Where we fuss about coordinating comforters and twin extra-long sheets so we don’t have to think about how much we’ll miss them when they’re off to school.dorm pile.jpg

Well, we are facing that reality here at the Radi house as our youngest child prepares to launch. I recently wrote a poem for parents (like me) who are experiencing anxiety on the night before move-in day. It was published last week on Grown & Flown, a website and blog about parenting older kids, and has received tremendous feedback.

If you’re interested, you can find the poem by clicking on the link below.

In addition, please follow me @outtoseaparents on Facebook where I share information on how to prepare for and survive the high school-to-college transition.

Lastly, please spread the word that Out to Sea is a great resource for parents as they face the Freshman Voyage! Thanks so much for your support.
