#007 Set Your Student Up to Crush College Stress

Statistics are driving home the importance of managing your child’s stress at college. Dale Troy joins the College and Career Clarity Podcast to tell parents how they can help their child maneuver through the pressure and stress that can overwhelm them at college.

Dale tells us what signs to look for before anxiety, depression, and stress derail them and the skills you can help your child start mastering in high school in order to prepare. And her information will help parents whose kids are still in high school position them for a successful transition to college.
