Health Tip: Parenting a College Freshman

-- As your child transitions from high school to life as a college student, you can still show that you care -- from a distance.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests:

  • Call your child regularly to check in.
  • Visit your child at school, more frequently than just on parents' weekend.
  • Get to know the parents of your child's roommates and friends.
  • If you suspect homesickness, encourage your child to talk to school counselors.
