Visiting your children at University

Waving your children off to university can leave many people feeling empty nest syndrome – when all the chicks have flown off and you’re all alone. Here’s a handy list of do’s and don’ts for when you visit your children at University.

 
PRLog - Feb. 22, 2012 - COLCHESTER, U.K. -- It’s been a term since you waved goodbye to your son or daughter and packed your estate car to the gills with their goods and chattels to take them to a new life, and probably a new world at university.

You’ve heard from them once or twice and you keep sneaking a look at their Facebook page – yes, they let you become a ‘friend’ but only after you begged them to let you in – so you know at least  they are still alive.

Now you have a chance to see them in the flesh so you’ve booked a Hotel in Liverpool and you are planning a trip to visit them. Booking into that Liverpool Hotel is probably one of the best moves you could make.

While your ‘child’ thinks they are an adult, let’s face it, they are likely to be rather new at looking after themselves – yes that means washing and ironing their own clothes, stocking the cupboards and cooking their own meals, E...V...E...R...Y   D...A...Y.

So the chances of them being able to offer clean sheets, a sleeping bag or even space on the floor in their box room is, well, let’s face it, as rare as snow in the Sahara.

When you bed down under clean sheets in one of the many hotels in Liverpool within easy reach of their university and then tuck into your continental breakfast the next morning, congratulate yourself that you no longer have to live like them. It might have been all right then, but now is another matter.

While your flesh and blood might be delighted to see you, they’ll also be wondering if you’d be able to help them out with a few goodies. Here are some top tips to treat your student son or daughter:
1.   Take them out for lunch, and dinner. OK, maybe invite them to breakfast at your Liverpool hotel, too, if they can rise before 10am.
2.   Accompany them to the local supermarket and buy a week’s worth of groceries.
3.   Make their favourite cake and bring it to them, but if you bring the cake box with it, take it home with you, too, if you want to ever see it again.
4.   Buy a students’ cookbook before you see them and present it to them over the weekend. You’ll be amazed at the different recipes for cooking baked beans.
5.   If you know they need an item of clothing desperately – no, not the Gucci gloves – and it’s a reasonable expense then buy it for them.
6.   If you decide you want to see your ‘child’ again on their home territory, buy them a train or bus ticket home – but don’t give them the money for it. Even those with the best of intentions might end up having to use the cash for other things.
Here’s what NOT to do:
1.   Don’t buy them a thermal vest as it’s likely to remain in the drawer. If you want to get them some more clothes, why not give them a voucher for the clothes shop you know they frequent.
2.   Don’t turn up with a slow cooker. Sounds like a fab’ idea to you but in the main, students just aren’t that organised to buy all the ingredients, prep’ the meal before class and bung it in the slow cooker. The next time you arrive to bring them home from uni’, you could find it missing – SOLD on eBay.
Enjoy your visit.
