1. By the time we dropped our son (a rule-follower) and daughter (a rule-breaker) off at college, although I cried and knew I would miss them, I was grateful to no longer have to impose curfews, worry when they were MIA, enforce attendance in school, pick up dirty dishes in their bedrooms, and other topics we struggled with in their junior and senior years, as they started their own separation process. At college, they were mom-less and on their own, which was good for them, and good for me.
