Getting prepared for college is a huge task. Theres's not just the parctical stuff like bedding, snacks, food, mini-fridge etc. There is also the adult topics to discuss. As a parent of a college student, these topics are critical to have. Why? No regrets. None at all. Even if something happens, which I pray it doesn't, at least you know, as a parent, that you did what you could. It's also a much better college transition.

Students with ADHD, learning disabilities, and mentla helath issues need these conversations to happen. At best, you get them prepared to consider other aspects of college life that your student may not have. Here six topics you might consider. Some are for thier safety, some for their character, and some to keep them at thier best.

What topics? 

  1. Behavior

  2. Safety

  3. Wellness planning

  4. Contact

  5. Home rules- commuting or back on breaks

  6. Finances
