Traveling with your kids always presents opportunities to learn more about yourself, your child, and to laugh or cry a little…ok a lot. I remember the time I took my son to a Bed & Breakfast for his first time on our first college tour. I couldn’t help but laugh as I explained to him the B&B mentality of “talking” during breakfast when in someone’s home. Or the time I dropped my daughter off for an interview and finally found the perfect coffee shop to do some work in, only for her to call me insisting I had to come back to admissions for my own “interview”. After many college visits, I learned my son wanted to be close to a city and did not want his college experience to revolve around Greek life. My daughter, who always talked about going south for warmer weather, is going north where everyone recommends buying a long goose down coat and warm boots to survive the cold from October through March! Have you ever asked your child what they loved about a school only to hear in response about the burger, fried Oreo or burrito you enjoyed in between campus visits? Don’t fret, as the most important thing to remember during this experience is to take the time to explore, listen, and enjoy every moment because before you know it, your son or daughter will be off on their next adventure.
