Speaking of college - The Clorox College Survival Guide

It's VERY difficult for me to keep a BIG secret. So, when Clorox had invited me as the mother of a college student to help them along with two other moms to create their Clorox College Survival Guide, I had to constantly bite my tongue, because I knew that it was something that I'd like to be able to PRESENT to you in it's COMPLETED state.

The idea was that most in-coming freshman and their parents have NO IDEA of

  • What to bring with you
  • How to clean a dorm room QUICKLY when you're friends (or parents) are about to show up.
  • What are the biggest regional TRENDS at your school
  • How to prevent getting sick (especially living in a dorm with so many others)
  • Freshman Orientation
  • and for MY part - Reminders of what your MOM HAS to say before you go
Now YOU can access The College Survival Guide 2009 to act as a bit of help when dealing with moving into the dorm for the first time.

For Regional Editions of the guide, simply become a Facebook Fan

You'll find all of the guides listed (in the lower left hand corner of their facebook page).

Plus get the opportunity to interact with all of us Moms and Kids who have "been there, done that" when it comes to going to college. If you're an old hat at the Back to School stuff - why not help by offering up some tips of your own?

I remember VERY WELL that first day of college for "B" as he was moving into a dorm directly across the street from the dorm that I stayed in back when I went to school there. Meeting the kids for the first time, who would end up being his best buds for years to come was a lot of fun, and I must say that I was impressed by their willingness to help us schlep everything inside and up the stairs.

This can be a stressful time for both parent and child. Make it a little easier on yourself by learning from those of us who have gone through the experience ourselves.

"I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of The Clorox Company and received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate."
