Are you ready for the great college move-in? Soon kids across the country will be packing up their cherished possessions and moving into college to start (or continue) their next chapter of life. Sigh….As a parent, I feel like a seasoned pro since Gabrielle will be heading back to Boston once again to start her final year of college.
The college experience from the search to the final choice to the actual move in is quite a process. It’s a rollercoaster ride of emotions for the entire family. It’s a new experience for everyone and most likely your child’s first time away from home. And, your first time without them at home. For us, we wanted Gabrielle to have consistency and all the essentials to make her home away from home awesome. Amongst that list of personal essentials that she stocks up on for college is LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE.
As parents, we all want our children to succeed in whatever they do. If your child chooses the college route, it is a big step. It’s probably their first real shot at independence. If done correctly, college can be one of the most fun and memorable times in their life. So while you are shopping and packing for campus life, here are 30 Survival Tips to help them achieve success in their college years.
