One thought on “Give Your Child An Exit Interview Before Leaving For College

  • August 20, 2019 at 11:52 am

    It would be interesting for you to do a follow up interview after his first semester or year away from home to see what he would say to a lot of the same questions. Maybe even as early as Thanksgiving. There is something about getting through those first weeks – the homesickness that sets in at about two or three weeks and then the realization that you actually start feeling at home at college with your new friends and then go home and look at your family and town with new eyes. Love and appreciation for your family, hopefully, but the awareness that you are separate from them.
