Reviews

"Letting Go should be a required text for any college parent. It reflects today's college student's reality and helps prepare parents for the exciting journey that awaits both them and their sons and daughters."--Marc Wais, Ph.D., Senior Vice President for Student Affairs, New York University
"A seminal source of information for families and their college-bound children."--Larry Moneta, Vice President for Student Affairs, Duke University
"Filled with practical and up-to-date information, Letting Go is must-reading for parents embarking on this next stage of life with their soon-to-be college students. Undoubtedly, the best guide available today."--Dr. Patricia A. Whitely, Vice President for Student Affairs, University of Miami
"A sensitive, informative and well-written guide to help parents know what their children are getting into when they leave for college. Full of practical advice and psychological insight, it's a better antidote than Valium for the anxieties parents feel as they prepare to let their children go."--Ben Lieber, Dean of Students, Amherst College
"As a high school principal, I find Letting Go to be an invaluable resource. Written in a humorous and accessible style, it answers the questions 'What happens next and how can you deal with it?'"--Louise Losos, Principal, Clayton High School, Clayton, Missouri
