    Sending an 18 year old off to college is challenging in many ways.

It is also very rewarding and makes parents proud.  The Universities help you with move in tips and what to pack and even tell you where to park.  But I haven't yet heard any official advise on how and when is proper to communicated with the person who lived in your home for the last 18 years.

      Now all of a sudden it's time to break daily ties.   My question is:  What is proper as far as communication on a day to day basis.

     When and how often do you text, call or e-mail?  Do you just let the student who has new found freedom call when he or she needs something?

     What is your opinion?
