Getting one ready for college is more than a trip to Bed Bath and Beyond. It is a culmination of hard work by the young adults, parents, and siblings. It both joyful and a stressful time, full of anticipation by all family members! Parents may feel much pride, anticipation, and questioning if they have taught their child all the lessons needed for college life. While younger siblings may feel a guity joy that they can use the empty bedroom as another closet. The College bound adult may have fleeting moments of leaving home, dorm life, wondering if the washing machine comes with instructions, and what will they find to fill the void of their annoying siblings. It all works out and it is most always ALL GOOD! But it is certainly more complex than a Trip to Bed-Bath- and Beyond!
