Why do I feel guilty about letting go of my son to attend college?

This is his first year and we move him in on the 23rd of Aug. and I feel guilty because I don't want him to go.

Empty nest syndrome. This is your baby! Of course you don't want him to go. I remember my dad crying when he dropped me off at school. He lingered and lingered. My mom kept saying, "Come on, let's go." This is a very exciting time for your son but a very difficult time for you. Saying good bye isn't easy. Keep communication open and don't be afraid of telling him how much you'll miss him. He'll be home soon enough with his dirty laundry. Hang in there and take care!
