For the families whose student is moving home for the summer after being away at school, there will be an adjustment period for everyone involved. This may also relate to “boomerang students” who have graduated but plan to live back at home. By talking about a few things upfront, you can make the transition smoother and much more pleasant.
Having your student home for the summer can be a wonderful thing, as long as you talk out some possible glitches before they become an issue. So, get out the coffee and gather around the kitchen table to talk through this transition. As long as you communicate from the start, everyone will enjoy being together again.
