As a parent, do you have the basic computer skills to maintain contact with your college student? Does your technology support your efforts, and do you have the most cost efficient systems in place?
The chances are that your child may be more up-to-date on the latest technology than you. It is important that you discuss a strategy to communicate in a cost efficient manner. If your child is studying thousands of miles away, or perhaps in another country, you don't want to incur telephone charges that might approach the cost of tuition!!
Join Jim Blue in a discussion of what you need to know about when your child is off to college.
It's good to talk.
