Back to school means college goodbyes. Now what?

Never was I at more of a loss than when the most important role of my life was redefined. Other parents’ lives helped me find perspective, fast.

Well, here we are. It’s August, and I know from reader mail and posts on social media that a lot of parents are bracing to send off their first or last child to college.

If you’re at all like I was when I sent my kids off, you’re probably trying to remind yourself how lucky you are. Look at your babies, fleeing the nest just like you taught them to do.
