Last week, Focus on the Family aired a two-part interview I recorded with them earlier this spring. In anticipation of the broadcast, I wrote a short parent-child discussion guide. It is designed as a “conversation starter” between a parent and a child about the important step of heading off to college. Many parents wonder:
Will my child’s Christian faith be strong enough to withstand the tests of college—the party scene, the atheistic professors seeking to brainwash freshmen? Will they manage their time well, or be overwhelmed with the amount of freedom that awaits them? Will they make solid, lifelong friends, or be lonely and get in with the wrong crowd? Will they be happy, successful, and persevering in their studies, or will they wander aimlessly from one major to the next?
