I have a question. I will be moving my son into the dorm very soon. His girlfriend wants to go with us. I don't have a problem with the girlfriend. I think she is a very sweet girl. I just think that my son needs to get his mind on college at this point. He has had a long summer with her but I think he needs to get his mind on school now. I think he should be concentrating on getting settled in his new environment and making new friends. I understand that she is upset about being separated but she will still have to say goodbye whether it is the night before or the day of move-in. I suggested that perhaps she could go up with us on a future trip instead. It only takes a few hours to get up there. Do you think it is appropriate for a girlfriend to go to the move-in or should this be a family thing? I'm just trying to make sure I'm making the right decision. Thanks for any advice you all could provide.
