I'm Going to College---Not You!: Surviving the College Search with Your Child
Bargain Book Copy
Acceptance by a top college has become the ultimate "good parenting" stamp of approval - the better the bumper sticker, the better the parent, right? Parents of juniors and seniors in high school fret over SAT scores and essays, obsessed with getting their kids into the right college, while their children are pushing for independence. In Surviving the College Search, Kenyon College dean Jennifer Delahunty addresses the tight-rope parents must walk between "control freak" and resource as they help their children through one of the most difficult phases of both their lives. With humor and hard-won knowledge, Delahunty and writers including Anna Quindlen, Jane Hamilton, Janet Maslin, and the directors of admissions at Smith and Colby Colleges answers questions like: How can a parent help but not take over? How can a parent be less of a "helicopter" and more of a "booster rocket"? What do you do when your child wants to put off college to become a rock star? How will you keep from wanting to kill each other?
