They grow up so fast

. April 30, 2013.

One of the biggest life transitions anyone will experience is leaving home for the first time and moving away to college. But while the new freshman
is timidly stepping foot into Comp 101 for the first time, Mom and Dad are in the background, sometime miles away, anxiously awaiting a phone call from their baby. So that the new collegian knows something of what to expect, bestselling author and nationally syndicated columnist Harlan
Cohen wrote “The Naked Roommate: And 107 Other Issues You Might Run Into in College” in 2005. Now turning his focus to the proud parents, Cohen has just released “The Happiest Kid on Campus: A Parent’s Guide to the Very Best College Experience (for You and Your Child).” In this manifesto for parents of a college student, Cohen outlines how to prepare for the upcoming schoolyear, the financial aspects of a college education,
what isn’t covered in the campus brochure, how to navigate the student’s growth from child to adult, and even proper parent Facebook etiquette.
