Am I ready for college? What will change? How will we stay connected? Mother-daughter team Margo Woodacre and Steffany Carey began their college journey as most parents and students do—full of excitement for the journey ahead and questions about what the journey would bring.

In this fully updated edition of I'll Miss You Too, they share practical tips on what to expect, the joys and challenges of their own transition to college, and advice on how to keep that special relationship strong throughout the college years and beyond.

Candid tips on:

  • The first few hours, days, and weeks apart
  • Staying safe, healthy, and happy
  • Talking openly in a social media age
  • Visits home and off-campus living
  • Preparing for life after college
  • ...and everything in between.

Praise For…

"I found I’ll Miss You Too helpful, witty, and very down-to-earth about how parents and students can face this change with humor and courage… I am holding a Class of 2015 parent send-off and will be giving all of them a copy of this book. My seniors are certainly in the spotlight, but many of their parents need to celebrate their accomplishment of getting their student to graduation as well. I believe many of them will find the book helpful and (I hope) a source of reason…while making the transition to college." — Keo Oura Kounlavong-Sabath, Director of College Counseling, Harrisburg Academy, Pennsylvania

"My favorite thing about I’ll Miss You Too is the transparency on both the student and parent perspective of the college process. I recommend it to all of my families as a powerful resource, especially families who are struggling with communication." — Michele Sternberg, Academic Dean and Director of College Counseling, Saint Edward’s School, Florida
