4 Things Kids Should Know Before College

Aug 13, 2013 / Life Stage: College Students and Adults     

Susan and I were driving our daughter, Emily, to college.  Questions invaded my mind… “Did I prepare her?” “What did I miss?” “What else do I need to tell her?”  I realized that it didn’t make sense to try to squeeze a bunch of lectures and life lessons in at the eleventh hour.  I had purposefully prepared her for this since she was a little girl.  Here are four things I taught her and always want her to remember as she goes off to college.  First, remember who you are.   Second, remember why you are here. Third, remember how you should live. Fourth, remember what you’ve been promised.  Here’s more on the 4 things kids should know before college.
