When my son got rejected from his college of choice, I didn’t know what to say. I wanted to tell my son that everything always works out, but I didn’t because I knew that wasn’t what he wanted to hear while the rejection was raw. (It turns out he is super happy at the university he ended up at). I wish I was better prepared as a parent to help my teen through this emotional part of the college process.
For all you parents facing March Madness, that time when the acceptance and rejection emails arrive , here is some great advice for coping from International College Counselors, a Florida college advisory firm.
