In 2008 I had one daughter graduate but she decided not to attend college, then in 2009 my second daughter graduated she is taking online classes to get her BA in Web Design, now my last daughter is getting ready to graduated this June and she wants to go to college for her medical degree, she doesn't want to travel too far so I am glad of that but she does want to travel far enough where she will have to stay in a dorm which I am not too happy about because I worry about her, she is very naive when it comes to "worldly" things. Please someone tell me what I should do? Should I let her go or make her stay and go to a college here in town where she can stay at home and still attend college?

Congrats on the journey! I'm headed that way soon. My son graduates in May. I live in Georgia too. My son doesn't have a choice but to stay in GA...as I told him we don't have a fairy godmother so....instate is the way to go.

Well welcome to the club ! :) My daughter graduated last year and went to a different state to college and is studying journalism too. The first 2 weeks were absolute HELL ! If he knows someone at the new school that will probably help some. My daughter did finally adjust and is very happy with her choice now, but be very aware of the freshman blues. She wasn't just homesick, she made herself physically sick because she was so unhappy.

Florida has a lot of great colleges... not sure about the major, but the school guidance office should be able to point you and your son in the right direction.

My son is looking at schools all the way across the country, we live in MD and he is looking in AZ! At least with you living in Georgia you have Florida right next to you.

Oh, and I agree with Deborah, make sure he can cook, and sew on a button too! He does not need to be a great cook, but teaching him a couple of basic dishes will be a huge bonus. Good luck.

Does he know how to cook? One of the best things we can do to help our sons, no matter what college they attend is to make sure they can cook for themselves. This is a lifetime skill that they will use for the rest of their lives and will help them to save money. They will not have to rely on takeout and fast foods, which we know is not good for them. Cooking helps guys to be independent and also learn budgeting. A membership siteset launch 9/16/10 Teach My college son to cook. Check it out at sassyfoodgal.com
