My daughter is entering her senior year she is terrified to enter adult life when she graduates. She is stressed because she dosent know what she wants to do she says she is torn she wants to stay close to home and part of her wants to go away for school.Im worried because I have seen other kids this age do stupid things to avoid making progress in their lives. How do I help this is my first child having to go through this. Luckily she hasnt ever given me a problem and has been a blessing to raise.

How about a local school or JC for next year? Or a college like 1 hour from where you live? Is she independent and able to navigate through her daily life without much parental input? If not, she may not be ready to leave the nest. My kids (23 and 19) have had many friends who ended up back home after freshman year, d/t the lack of readiness skills needed to live away from mom and dad. My kids were/are both very independent souls (but 1 did give me issues in HS), yet both did fine living away from home. In addition,neither of of ours lived on campus. My oldest lived alone in an apartment, worked and attended University and Grad schools about 300 miles away from home. My youngest lived 2000 miles away from home in his first year of University. Luckily, we have been transferred back to the west coast and are now only 350 miles away!
