Transitioning to College

Every child is an individual so there is no one rule that works perfectly for every child as they prepare themselves for the transition to college. A child's transition to college life can depend on many things including their maturity, sense of purpose, abilities and how much independence and self reliance that they have been able to experience in the years leading up to their college freshman year. The social and emotional aspects of living away from home before they are ready can have a far reaching impact on the academic component of the college experience.
