Are Parents Going Overboard Pampering their College Students ??Sep 27
Chances are when you were a student living on campus, you shared a small apartment or dorm room with one, two, or three other students. College was the time where you had to learn to cook, clean, do laundry, and other household tasks.
There is a new trend on campuses across the US; students and parents are hiring companies to do cleaning, laundry, packing, etc. They are also hiring services that do grocery and food delivery. Instead of staying in campus dorms, or sharing apartments, parents are arranging for private apartments for their sons and daughters.
There is definitely sharp disagreement among parents about this latest trend. We tend to think that students should learn to do many of these tasks, and not rely on others. The alternative opinion is that students are a school to earn a degree, not be distracting with household responsibilities.
