You just do! My daughter is going to university in September. We will do everything we can to support her.
If you let them go, they will always come home. If you try to hang on to them, they will break free and never look back. Metaphorically speaking of course.

You suck it up and do it. If it helps you can remind yourself that some people actually do lose (as in bury) their children. In other words, being a drama queen about it isn't going to make you or her feel any better.
