Kids Leave Home For College: How To Cope

February 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 145

Home has been your haven for the past 18 years. Life is busy, but the daily routines keep you sane. The kids are always underfoot and very busy. You struggle sometimes with the pressures of raising kids, but you wouldn't have it any other way. Suddenly your world shatters. Your oldest child is about to leave for college - in another State. Apart from sleep-overs at friends, they have never been away from home before. Now they are leaving home and may be hundreds of miles away. You can't imagine what life will be like without them or how you will cope. Thankfully, today's technologies allow you to stay connected in ways you never imagined.

Regular mail is quickly being replaced by email. The speed and ease of sending messages, photos, and even video clips and music, makes it an ideal way to keep in touch with your kids in college. This is a great way to stay in touch, but because there is no interactivity, there is no real feeling that you are really connected.

Everyone today has a cell phone. This is another great means of staying in touch with your kids when they leave home for college. It's great to be able to call and hear their voice, having a good chat and get some inkling of what's going on in their new lives at college. Smart phones also allow you to send messages, photos, music and more. However, for many the costs to keep in touch with your college kids via cell phones can be very prohibitive.

Utilizing 'Skype' has become popular as a means of keeping in touch and actually being able to see your children when they leave home. You can interact face-to-face and see how your kids are doing at college. However it may be difficult to setup an appointment for a call, particularly with their hectic college schedules and perhaps even time zone differences. You also have the annoyance of hazy frozen images, making your call so frustrating that you sometimes wonder why you bothered.

Now imagine a connection that is crystal clear, on a secure network, with no need for coordinating appointment times, where you just pick up the phone and dial, seeing your kids smile as though they were in the same room, and the call is free.

Today's video phone technology allows you to do exactly that. Calls from one video phone to another are completely free around the world. The quality and clarity of a video phone call will allow you to see your kids every day. See and hear their adventures, meet their roomies, see what their new dorm room looks like, see the sparkle in their eyes, and share the excitement of college life. And most importantly, see that your kids are happy and safe.

The video phone is completely portable, so when your kids change rooms at college, the video phone moves with them. The only requirement is a good internet connection.

Additionally, the video phone is a true home phone replacement. You get to use the video phone for all your calls just as you have always done with a traditional handset, saving you even more money. The huge savings and fantastic features that video phone technology provides ensures it is a smart choice for everyone. You will wonder how you ever managed before you had your video phone.

You can access video phone technology today and never lose touch with your kids when they leave for college. Just ensure you choose a quality video phone that will make your calling experience the joy that it should be, combined with a reputable supplier with a fantastic global network and sensational customer service and support.
