Recognize that this is a big transition, but have faith in your parenting.
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart will host best-selling author Karen Coburn, “Letting Go: A Parent’s Guide to Understanding the College Years." The acclaimed book provides parents with valuable insights, information, comfort and guidance throughout the emotional and social changes of the college years.
“I tell parents to recognize that this is a big transition but have faith in your parenting. Your kids know the values you have instilled in them and they will be taking those values with them to college,” Coburn says.
Coburn is nationally known for her tips on helping students and parents make a smooth transition from high school to college –from what to bring, to what to expect, to how to stay in touch.
“Often the best support parents can give their college-age children is to encourage them to take charge of their own college experience.”
“Letting Go,” in its fifth printing, has sold more than 330,000 copies. Coburn will speak on Tuesday, April 28th at 6:30 p.m. in the Lee Theatre located on the Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart campus located at 4800 139th Ave. S.E., Bellevue, WA. The event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
