Today is Mother's Day - Sunday, May 13, 2012.
Did you ever think of what our mothers think of on their day?
My guess is one of the things they are thinking about is their adult children and what they might be able to do to help them find their way at university.
Often I hear from mothers about their concerns regarding their student's progress at the U. Some contact me to find out how best to counsel their young person to ensure they make the most of their university experience. Others express frustration about the things that are no longer in their control. I try to be as helpful as possible, while encouraging them to continue to find ways to support their young person.
On this day, let me encourage you to reach out to your mother to thank her for all she does and to let her know you are on your way.
