Tip #104 For Parents With College Students Coming Home For The Summer

Tip #104

When your college student (you know, the one who is pulling mostly A’s and a couple B’s and works part-time to help pay for school, the one who is coming home this summer to save money) calls home, excited about the internship she just snagged for the summer and she announces that it’s not a paid internship, but it’s going to be great experience and look amazing on her resume…

Your first response should NOT be: “What are you going to do for money this summer?”

Epic fail, Jane.

  1. Don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s our role as parents to think of things like this. We’re trying to help them grow up to be responsible adults. I would have said the same thing, and then, like you, kicked myself for not immediately cheering on my child unconditionally.

  2. Thanks. I needed that. 🙂

  3. No it shouldn’t be, but it would have been my first question too! 😀
