Tips for the Best Parents' Weekend

Did you recently take your child to college? If you live close enough and do not want to wait until Thanksgiving to see them, here are tips for the best Parents' Weekend.

Lisa, of Grown and Flown, writes: September’s turmoil is over.  Bed Bath and Beyond has been depleted, dorm move-in has been successfully accomplished, and classes are in full swing.  As parents, we can stop worrying about the transition to college and plan the visit.  If you live close enough to your college age child and do not want to wait until Thanksgiving to see them, well, it’s time for a little journey.  Some schools have an established Parents’ Weekend or you might just be head to school on your own…either way, here are some things to think about.

Bring food, after all they are teens, need I say more. If you bake, you are a goddess. If you can’t bring provisions, the grocery store makes a nice family outing.

In my informal poll, okay my Facebook page, there was a strong feeling that “Parents’ Weekend” was not really the best parents’ weekend, that the crowds and the staged events were not the optimal atmosphere in which to visit offspring.  Personal opinion will need to prevail.

If you are going to take your kid and, perhaps, their friends out, book early, really early. You will be unpleasantly surprised how fast reservations for hotels and restaurants in a college town will fill up for Parents’ Weekend.  I reserved a hotel for parents’ weekend the night my son picked his college, a touch neurotic you say?
