“I take the shuttle into Boston on the weekends with my friends. A lot of them haven't been to Faneuil Hall and I've lived close to the city all of my life, so I'm always the one to show them around. So it's really fun to go away on the weekend with the girls.”

Once Your Student Has Left for School
- Remember that once your college student has left, the family dynamic will change. The sibling (or siblings) remaining at home will now have a new position in the family. Perhaps responsibilities will change. Perhaps activities may change. Room arrangements may even change. Be sensitive to the upheaval the sibling may be experiencing.
- Consider giving the sibling a journal or notebook in which she can document important activities or thoughts to share with the college student when he returns.
- Encourage the sibling to communicate with the college student through phone conversations, e-mail, snail mail or text messaging. A younger sibling can draw and send pictures or school papers to share.
- Encourage your college student to stay in touch with his sibling. He can call or write, talk to his sibling when he calls home, or even consider letting a sibling visit campus if that is practical.
- Allow a sibling to help prepare a care package to send to the college student. She can think about what should be included and can help gather or make items.
