The Distraught Parents’ Hotline (713.553.6557) is like happy hour — without the adult beverages (at least on my end of the conversation) — with a great listener. Parents unburden themselves to the Hotline with tales of their children’s struggles, apologizing to me for being “that” mom or dad. I assure them that they are not alone: over the past 18 years, I’ve learned of daughters and sons grappling with anxiety, depression, grief, chronic illness, romantic entanglements, and other obstacles. These challenges often follow students from high school to college.
On April 30, at Summer Checklist for the College-Bound, listen to parents with over 80 years of childrearing experience discuss the do’s and don’ts for sending kids to and through college.
