Item Description...
College Admissions Together is more than a practical how to get into college book, though it does explain key aspects of today's college admissions process for both parents and students. It is a guide to healthy family relationships during the college admissions process. This invaluable book looks at the often stressful process of finding the right college for your child not as an ordeal but as an opportunity to bond as a family and to give your child safe passage to adulthood as he or she determines which colleges are the best fit. In College Admissions Together, educational consultant Steve Goodman and family psychologist Andrea Leiman help parents recognize that what makes the college admissions process a potential danger zone for families is the combination of the teen's growing independence and the parent's need to help him or her make critical decisions for the future. They answer difficult questions like how to stay involved in the process while allowing your child to make more choices. They help you put the college admissions process into the context of your child's passage to adulthood and understand what he or she is feeling and facing as your child makes the decision of where to go next. Using Goodman and Leiman's advice, tips, and exercises, the college admissions process will lead to a greater appreciation of each other and mutually rewarding family relationships that last a lifetime. College Admissions Together serves families, counselors, teachers, and others as an essential resource during a stressful time in most families' lives.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Superb and Comprehensive Guide to College Admissions  Sep 5, 2007
College Admissions Together: It Takes a Family, by Steven Roy Goodman et al. is an outstanding new work which should have an immediate place in the homes of all parents and children contemplating the utterly complex and confusing college admission process in the immediate or not so immediate future. Clearly written, sensitively thought out, brimming with examples, College Admissions Together has one general theme; no one child can pass through the college admissions process today alone, without the help and assistance of his or her family. More pertinently, the authors argue, the family must be understanding, patient, helpful and loving in their attitudes and assistance towards the college applicant, rather than judgmental, harsh or critical.

College Admissions Together is full of examples of what NOT to do as parents, and shamefully, you or I might well recognize some parental behaviors that we may have engaged in in the past that will not and cannot assist our children in the complex and difficult burden of applying to college. The authors stress harmony, understanding and love, along with respect for the child-applicant; affirmation and positive thinking rather than negativity and disapproval; and in all respects, achieving a positive result through goal oriented actions as a cohesive group.

Achieving what College Admissions Together: It Takes a Family and its authors want us to do will not be easy; it may require time, and breaking down some walls and barriers, including speaking to our children as adults and sentient beings. But in the end, the approach urged by this book and its authors makes sense, and plenty of it.

This is a must-read for all parents, and also all students, contemplating college in the next 1-6 years.

--Maria M. Zissimos, Esquire, Attorney at Law
