In an effort to avoid fracturing the parent-student relationship within the college search process, it’s important for both parent and child to try and find a healthy balance. While it’s true that the bulk of responsibilities in the college admissions process will need to be handled by the student, the input and encouragement from a parent can help their child avoid making the wrong choice when it comes to their future. However, it’s this input that could just as easily disrupt the harmony between a parent and their child. For this reason, it’s imperative that parents and children alike prioritize open communication, sound organization and a shared understanding between each other. Though it will be difficult, getting through this process can help improve the likelihood that your children remain successful for their entire lives.
