    Just sent them off to be honest. They never had trouble at camp and never had issues in school so off to college they went. I have never been accused of being a helicopter parent so maybe there is something to be said for being naieve.

    Some other things that I always told my kids were:
    Treat people the way you want to be treated
    No one is perfect
    Don't be a doormat
    And don't be a hypocrite..as in don't get mad at your roommate for being messy when you're messy yourself.

    These things aren't just helpful for college but for life as well...
