Episode Description

By the time your child is a high school senior you’ve likely been on literally 100s of family outings, road trips, and vacations together. With each one comes life lessons. First, you support him on the playground and teach him how to climb and swing across those monkey bars.You teach her how to kick the soccer ball and share in victory and defeat. The lessons about history come with a trip to Washington DC to Lincoln Memorial and nature lessons come with a visit to Mount Rushmore or the Grand Canyon. It is quite possible that the college admission process is designed to bring families together, in many ways, for the last time, for the final life lessons. As a parent, your first instinct is the safety and security of your child. And perhaps above all, what you desire most on any road trip is their happiness. Our guest today shares how the college selection process is much the same; finding a safe HOME,a secure ROOM, and a COLLEGE that makes your teen happy.
