Parents Move to College with Daughter: Smart or Smothering?

Once upon a time there was an interesting story about parents who moved to studying place with their child. There were many discussions on different resources, many viewpoints and many thoughts about that. One point is that heading out with your child to college gives an opportunity to avoid all the college troubles one may face and it’s good. Another point is that children have to get experience of living away from parents and coping with difficulties by themselves.

Those parents from the story claimed their daughter to have absolute freedom. But all in all can that be truth? Anyway child always stays in parent’s eyesight and so-called freedom seems to be only formal. How can one develop skills of living away from parents and build own life? Hard to say.
