iTunes Soundcloud | Stitcher | RSS


How to choose the right college? If college may be in your kid’s future, don’t miss this surprising, practical, deeply comforting episode. In Episode 121 of Edit Your Life, Asha interviews Lisa Heffernan, co-founder of Grown & Flown, a blog about parenting 15-25 year old kids through high school, college, and beyond. Asha and Lisa talk big-picture-to-nitty-gritty about the elusive notion of “college fit,” what really brings kids success (hint: it’s not the college’s reputation or pedigree), how to let go of baggage about where kids “should” go to college, how to support your kids without taking over, and more.
