Health Tip: Parenting a College Freshman

Health Tip: Parenting a College Freshman

(HealthDay News) -- 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.
