Publisher's Summary

Created for parents and families of college-bound students, Jon McGee's Dear Parents is an essential tool you'll need to navigate the complex and often emotional challenge of getting your daughter or son prepared for - and through - college. Organized chronologically, the book takes listeners through the stages of childhood leading up to college, as well as the process of searching for and selecting a college. From the decisions you make during your child's early years to the process of setting up their dorm room, this book provides parents with insights, wisdom, and guidance about college, college preparation, and choosing a college.

Letters written by college and educational professionals, all with children, frame and illuminate each chapter. Drawing on their personal and professional experience, these experts offer practical and sympathetic advice about preparing for college. The book concludes with insights about sending children off to college and the appropriate roles for parents as your children experience these important years. Undergirded by research but informed by on-the-ground insight, Dear Parents is designed to both engage and inform while demystifying the daunting and ever-changing process of entering college.

Enlightening

McGee fills in all the the things I had and had not considered. I wish I'd had all of these details and insight when I was a high school student and much later, a graduate student. A must-read/listen for all of us,traditionally college-bound or not--McGee's and many other contributors' experiences keep it interesting & well-paced, as well as informative.
