About the Book



"A previous edition of this book was published in 2009 by HarperPerennial, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers."



Book Synopsis



The sixth edition of this classic parents' guide and college orientation staple has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the realities of college today.

For more than a decade, Letting Go has provided hundreds of thousands of parents with valuable insights, information, comfort, and guidance throughout the emotional and social changes of their children's college years--from the senior year in high school through college graduation.

Based on research and real life experience, and recommended by colleges and universities around the country, Letting Go, Sixth Edition, has been updated and revised, offering even more insightful, practical, and up-to-date information. In this era of constant communication, this edition tackles the challenge facing parents: finding the balance between staying connected and letting go.

  • When should parents encourage independence?
  • When should they intervene?
  • What issues of identity and intimacy await students?
  • What are normal feelings of disorientation and loneliness for students--and for parents?
  • What is different about today's college environment?
  • What new concerns about safety, health and wellness, and stress will affect incoming classes?

A timeless resource, Letting Go, Sixth Edition, is an indispensable book that parents can depend on and turn to for all of their questions and concerns regarding sending their children to college.



Review Quotes




"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
