Advice to Parents 

There is no shortage of advice to parents of students going off to college. While we will provide you some of our advice and a bibliography of books that you could purchase, we really hope that we can use this site to provide advice from parents to parents.   Take a few minutes to read through our Timely Tips From Coffee and Conversation.

So, to all those experienced (but not yet expert) parents of college students, please email us at with your advice, your funny stories, your "I can't believe my child did this" stories, or your success stories. If you want anonymity, that's fine too.

To start out, please take a look at the links in the drop down menu for some advice we have collected through the years.
