It was a good read for parents of high school seniors, one I'm glad she passed along. Ideally, we've been doing these things all along -- gradually loosening the reins, having the talks in bits and pieces -- in preparation for the day we set them loose on the world. Admittedly, it's a lot easier to follow these suggestions when the kid is outnumbered by parents, as mine is, and when you're lucky enough to trade in full-time work for a flexible schedule, as I was.
I know a year from now, I'll look back, amazed at how fast it all went and how much occurred. But for now, I plan to milk it for all it's worth.
Enjoy your weekend...and your kids.
