My kids are already aware that once they're done grade 12 they're off to the big city for university or college--they need to learn how to live on their own for a bit, get a good career and have some fun before getting married and having a family. At 12 or 13 they will start doing summer camps at the university I went to 5 hrs away (we will be there of course). I want them to be so thirsty to get out of my house and learn, to look forward to going to school. Of course I'm all serious and telling them it'll be hard work, but I know I had an amazing good time separating from my family, but knowing I always had their support on the other end of the phone. And lets be honest, I had a lot of fun getting my nursing degree! They are going to love it!

#5, you can always send her up here to gprc, small college where I work and know lots of people and I can find her a good place to rent (plus keep an eye on her, lol!)
