Good Kids in College?

I had an opportunity recently to talk with Marybeth Hicks about howto be a good parent to college-aged young adults. Hicks is the author of Bringing up Geeks: How to Protect Your Kid's Childhood in a Grow-Up-Too-Fast World . GEEK is Marybeth's acronym for Genuine, Enthusiastic, Empowered, Kids. Her book is crammed full of good advice for raising a child who is in the world but not of the world. She offers a treasure trove of practical wisdom, particularly for parents of 'tweens and teens. It's a book well worth owning and I've read it two years in a row now, just before the school year begins. I wondered though, how do Marybeth Hicks' ten principles of parenting stand up when it's time for a child to leave the nest? She was gracious enough to talk with me a bit about GEEKs in college...

If you have college-aged kids, read the rest here. If you have kids who might some day be college-aged kids, read the rest here. And if you live next door to get the idea. This is a must read. Marybeth has so much to offer and it's so, so important we listen. 

Also, if you follow the book link, you will find that $5.50 to be the best you've spent this year on books. Really, a great book.
