Going to college can be a very stressful time for any child but its also hard on the parents. I remember being more scared my first day of college than any other time in my life. It was like a whole new world. My mom fussed over me like crazy but she worked there so I went and saw her like 5 times my first day of classes. My dad also worked at the college so it wasn’t as bad for me as it could have been. I can’t imagine what it would be like for those kids who have to go away for school. I will cry when my boys go. That is why there are great people like Lauren Salamone out there. Lauren Salamone is an award-winning mentor to today’s college students and has been dubbed the College Guidance Guru. Lauren shares simple and powerful strategies that have fostered success in young women and their parents.
She is sponsoring two great prizes! The first prize is her book 5 Must Know Secrets for Today’s College Girl. It is a Best Books Award Finalist from USA Books. I wish I had something like this when I started college. I was a dork and certainly didn’t have a real plan going on. My plan was to find my classes and avoid cars.
She is also giving away Overcomers, Inc which is meant for the moms. True Stories of Hope, Courage, and Inspiration and that is exactly what you will find inside. I love books that showcase what others have went through especially for situations that are full of indecision like college. The description reads, “readers find themselves inspired, newly transformed, and energized to face whatever challenges may be before them” That definitely sounds like the type of thing I would need when I get to that point in my life.
