5 Ways to Stay Connected to Your College Student

Back to school can be hard on parents because they think they are losing their kids.. Whether they are headed off to college for the first time, or embarking on a post-grad adventure around the globe, here are five easy ways to actively stay connected with your grad:

Social Media: Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. It is safe to say millennials are addicted to social media, and it’s likely your grad is too. Post on their wall, send them a tweet or comment on their photos. Your grad will definitely see it. Want to mix it up? Try Snapchat. It is a convenient and fun way to share quick snaps of what you are doing or where you are.

Weekly Phone Dates: There is nothing better than hearing a loved one’s voice. Schedule a time that works for both of you and make it a routine. A regular phone date gives you and your grad something to look forward to every week.

Skype: Take your phone calls to the next level with Skype. Skype allows users to talk face-to-face, making you feel closer and more connected. The app is available on any iOS or Android device, including your Touchjet Pond™ Projector.

Snail Mail: Send a letter or postcard to your grad. Everyone loves getting something in the mail. The extra effort of sending a handwritten note is sure to show your grad how much you really care.

GroupMe: GroupMe is an app that allows users to create and customize private group texts. Even better, it is free and works on any device! Create a group to keep in touch with your friends or family and let the fun begin.

It doesn’t matter which one you choose, these methods will help you and your grad be closer than ever. Have an idea to add? Leave us a comment below.
