Hi Everyone!! I joined this group because I have a son who will be going away to college in the fall. While I'm really excited for him and he's more than ready....I'm wondering how I will handle it? He'll be about an hour and a half away.....so not that far, but far enough for him to gain his sense of independence. He is a wonderful young man and we have a wonderful, close relationship....so I'm sure I'm more having a hard time with this. I worry probably way too much.....how do you deal with it when you don't know where they are all the time.....what they are doing....and they no longer have to check in like they used too?
