My dd 19, went off to college, she's the oldest of 3. She went to school 12 hrs away by car, in another state. She called me the other day and asked if next year she could come back home and just take classes in the small town we live in.
How do i tell her my fears of her going back into her old life meaning hanging around an older crowd, going out to all hours of the night, etc?
I don't think, her coming back to this town is a good idea. It's a trap of a town, i was so happy to see her get out and experiance the world. (I myslef plan on leaving when the youngest finishes high school)
I'm worried she'll quit school and just work at a restraunt, which she did for town years while in high school. They're letting her work durning holiday's while she's at home, so she has a job here.
What to do?
What should I say to her?

I agree with telling her how you feel. She hasn't been there long enough to really give it a try. She's probably just a little homesick. I'd encourage her to stick it out & really try to make a go of it where she is.
