Dueling Parents = Conflicted Student

College bound high school students whose parents are separated or divorced can feel conflicted and discouraged when the parents fail to agree about where the student should attend college and how to pay for it. A frequent reaction is for the student to give up his own desires to satisfy the parent who makes the most noise or demands. When a student gives up during the college process, his chances of success in college diminish because his enthusiasm and confidence have taken a big hit from his arguing parents.
 
Separated and divorced parents want the best for their children and often don't realize the pressure their disagreements place on their high school senior. The senior year of high school is a time high school seniors need united parent support. Parents who can come to an agreement about what is best and how to proceed will do much to insure the success of their college-bound child.
