I'm sad... →
[More:]I thought parenting would get better once you sent the kids off to college, but it gets tougher because you can't advocate for you kid to the same extent. About all you can do is be there for them when they hit the rough patches.
My son had a good scholarship at a private school, but it looks like he won't be able to keep the grades necessary to hang on to it. But what really kills me is that he is discouraged. I don't know how to lift him up, other than to offer support.
My heart breaks. He's a good kid, but he just isn't sure about anything anymore. And I don't know how to make it better.
