It helped to read and have a 'formal' map for parental journey for next few years on what to expect when and some tips on how to approach the situation.
Every student, every parent and every family is different and will need its own customized approach and the framework given in the book will come handy to develop their approach.
To all future parents who are on the verge of letting go, Relax! It will be alright!?
