Parenting: Preparing properly for college

December 28, 2010 8:07:15 AM PST
My son Jason has finally finished writing all of the essays required for his various college applications. The test scores and transcripts have been requested. The teacher recommendations sent. Now, we wait until mid-April to find out where he's been accepted. And then, he'll decide where he's likely to spend the next four years. It's been a lot of work for him. But his Dad and I have been preparing for this time just about since his birth. Because, of course, with college comes college tuition and the need to pay for it.
