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.
