If you had to guess, how many hours per day would you say your child spends on electronic-related activities? According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, a 2010 research study conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that children and teens between the ages of 8 to 18 years spend on average more than 7 hours per day with various forms of media and electronics.
Applying for and choosing which college to attend can be an incredibly stressful and overwhelming process. However, this does not have to be the case. It is important to remind yourself, first and foremost, that there is no “perfect” college, just as there is no “perfect parent.” What makes a college the right choice is up to you and how the college fits into your goals, interests, and priorities. Now, these goals, interests, and priorities are unique to YOU. They may differ from those of your friends, teachers, and even your parents. That’s OK.
