Aside from the birds and the bees talk, perhaps the conversation most parents are afraid to have with their children is the talk about college.  Both students and parents feel the pressure about making sure kids are accepted into the perfect school, what a particular school might mean for a child’s future, and how exactly the cost of college will be met by the family. Mark’s guest - Jon McGee has spent much of his career studying the influence of trends on college enrollment and how students make their college choice. Yet when his oldest son began to explore colleges, McGee felt as overwhelmed as most parents grappling to help their child prepare for this life-changing decision and the emotional challenges ahead. With three more kids close behind, McGee began his own search—for comprehensive, authoritative, encouraging, and compassionate guidance in one easy-to-follow manual. When he couldn’t find one, he turned to his colleagues in higher education.       

DEAR PARENTS: A Field Guide for College Preparation (Johns Hopkins University Press; 2018) is the result: a collection of letters to parents from parents, most of college-age children, with leadership positions at colleges, universities, and secondary schools across the country.

"Mark Farrell is an engaging speaker and a remarkably talented man whose personal experiences overcoming adversity are inspirational.  I am very grateful that our students and faculty had the chance to hear him speak and to meet him during one of our major events at our school.  His moving stories about his own experiences with visual impairment enhanced our understanding about the challenges associated with vision loss and the power of the human spirit to meet those challenges with determination and dignity."
