Share Resources

This tip piggybacks on asking “How are you going to handle that?” As a parent, you may be more concerned with resources on campus than your student is. Exploring campus resources as a parent is great and helps connect you to the university. When it is mid-semester and your daughter has her first big history exam, tell her about opportunities such as Study Partners and Supplemental Instruction rather than signing her up and telling her that she is going. Auburn has numerous resources to help your student succeed, but your student has to want to utilize these resources in order for them to help.

It is always best for communication with professors to be with students and not with parents. If your student is facing difficulties in class, encourage them to visit their professor's office hours, which are listed on the course syllabus.
