I posted on the "other" forum and decided to duplicate the thread here as well. What should parents do to prepare for plebe summer? What is good to send in care packages? How many? What NOT to send? Obviously, we need to be prepared for the phone call and hearing how darned difficult it is. We parents need to listen and encourage. What helped some of you parents get through the summer? Anyway, experienced parents, send in your suggestions to us newbies! I have gotten some good suggestions over on CC. However, I think some of us only utilize one of these forums. So.....let us know!
