That breathless sense of not knowing how your student is really doing, worrying, family stress, new communication patterns, wanting the best, wondering how to effectively guide, and how to step in and out of your student’s development during the college years – this is parenting a college student! Sound familiar?
I am interested in reducing your worry and stress, and helping you to anticipate and navigate challenges and opportunities as you parent your college student.
Help your student to make the most of their college experience through informed parenting.

Meet Kay Gruder
With 12 years of experience as a parent coach and 30 years of experience in higher education providing advising to students, I have a deep knowledge of student development through the early adult years. I have seen how informed parenting, and effectively pairing freedom and support, can help students to make the most of their college experience and successfully engage in adulthood.
Recognizing that parents seek access to parenting resources when they need them most, I wrote Parenting Your College Student, providing concise, strategy and tip driven content, that you can put to immediate use as you communicate with, and guide, your student during the many transitions, challenges, and stressful situations that occur during college.
Knowing we don't do our best parenting when we are worried or stressed, my goal is to help you move from challenges to solutions.
