What led you to write your new book, A Father’s Letters (with subtitle “To His College Daughters)?
The critics described your approach as “counter cultural form of parenting” … could you explain why they drew that conclusion?
What did you recommend to your daughters for that transition through college?
Do you have any other recommendations for parents of college students?
Did you think your approach worked with your children? And do you think the same approach would work for other students?
How does this topic relate to improving the parent's health? And how does this topic relate to improving the student's health?
