The Parent-Student Relationship In College Searches

Throughout the college search process, parents and their children attempt to work in unison. However, as seen within the infographic attached to this post, while 55% of parents say they feel the relationship is operating at a fair balance, only 38% of students report the same feeling. This means that more and more students are feeling as though their parents are still demonstrating more authority than they should in these situations. Knowing this is the case, parents need to take a step back and offer their child the lead throughout the search process and understand that the support they offer can be just as invaluable from the sidelines. That said, students should often go to their adult peers, parents included, for advice regarding the college search process as their opinions can help feel better prepared for the times ahead. In order to learn more about those times, be sure to view the resource incorporated in this post.
