Lagniappe...The Launching Years

A helpful book for parents about to embark on "the launching years," which the authors define as the senior year of HS to the early years of college. Like many such books, some of the advice and commentary seems obvious or common sense, but the effect of reading the book on me was to realize that what the authors call the roller coaster of emotions and changes that occur in a family at this time is shared by many families. The book seems pitched to the upper middle class who send their children off to residential colleges and universities away from home.
