About This Workshop

Your student has gone through a lot of changes even in these first months of life away at school. There will be a lot to unpack and it won’t be all laundry. Expect that both you and they may have complicated emotions and even some confusion as you find your new rhythm together. 

Both parents and young adults face unique challenges and adjustments as you all seek to create a harmonious holiday experience together. Join us for a deeper understanding of your college student’s experience. You’ll gain practical tips and important insights on what to expect so you can welcome them home with care and understanding and create a sweet holiday season for the whole family.
