Parents will often experience the same feelings and emotions that their child does throughout the college search and admissions process. As a parent, it’s almost a guarantee that you’re feeling nearly the same level of excited, nervous, and anxious about your child getting into college as they are. For many parents, these feelings are enough for them to assume more control of the process, rather than allowing their child to properly grow through the responsibilities they’d have to assume throughout this process. This is why it’s so important to ensure that you don’t allow those feelings to overwhelm you thus affecting how your son or daughter approaches the application process. Even though you both may have a dream school in mind, the important thing to know is that there are many different paths to success. For example, what you may have thought was merely a “safety school” could turn out to be a great fit for your child. Allowing your child to find a footing throughout this process will better prepare them to be able to make that first step into the larger world without stumbling.
