Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Woodacre, a former Delaware state senator, and her daughter, Bane, now an advertising copywriter, offer the perspectives of a doting mother and a high-achieving daughter on milestones beginning with the senior year in high school and ending with acclimating to life post-graduation. Though most of the advice is common sense (communication and negotiation are the threads that hold together the book) and the dueling authors share a love of exclamation points and seem to be contestants in a congeniality contest, parents having a hard time understanding what's going on inside their college student child's head or wanting reassurance that their feelings of loneliness, worry and dread aren't unique would do well to pick up this perky book.

Review

"Perfect for graduation season..an amazing gift for any mother to read – maybe add some notes or highlight some passages – and then pass it on as a graduation gift to their daughter. " - Mama Smith's Review Blog

Would be great for both parents and graduating seniors! It really is a Must-Read!

This book is fresh and updated and can surely help parents and future freshman with this transition. If the fat envelope has landed on your doorstep recently, "I'll Miss You Too" is one book to get.

When given this book, I thought I didn't need it. College, no problem! Well, my first lesson in college was that I was wrong. I did need this book. Doors Open from Both Sides, is a must have for not only college students, but also for parents. After reading through this book I learned that I wasn't the only one going through all these emotions that I had never before felt, that I wasn't the only one who was sacred, anxious, nervous, excited, and thrilled all at the same time. The thing is, I didn't just learn that other college students shared my feelings, but that my parents did too. In there own way, they were riding an emotional roller coaster right along with me.
The greatest part about Doors Open From Both Sides is that its not written by some doctor who probably doesn't even have kids, but it's written by a parent and child who experienced all these feelings and dealt with all the issues. It is the true story of a parent/ child relationship that everyone can relate to.
Going away to college, coming home for the first time, and growing up, are all issues that can be dealt with with a little patience and understanding. Door Open From Both Sides, gives that understanding, along with some tips and pointers that are realistic and helpful.
Keep this book in mind for anyone you know that may be going away to school or that has a child going away. Makes a great graduation gift.

This book was wonderfully insightful. As a single parent with a beautiful intelligent young girl I had many questions that were eloquently answered by the suggestions in this book. There are not many books out there that offer the point of view that this one does. It helped me immensely. It helped bring me and my daughter closer and aided in the confrontation that was inevitable because it eliminated any aggressive behavior due to fear. It brought to my attention the questions that you forget to ask or are unprepared to answer. This book was a great communication guide for me and my daughter to open the doors of what may be expected in this difficult but necessary transition. I am confident of the authenticity of this book and how the advice given really will pertain to your experience with your loved one. Every parent wants to be as prepared as possible in lives huge alteration's for me it was relieving to have material such as these book to make the inevitable progression of a youths education a smooth and healthy one. This book is a brilliant example of how the skills of parenthood have excelled.

Format: Paperback
Deftly co-authored by the mother/daughter team of Margo E. Bane Woodacre and Steffany Bane, Doors Open From Both Sides is a parent/student guide for navigating the emotional transition to college and describes the full array of new challenges facing both the parent and their child from college acceptance to graduation. Drawing on their own personal narratives, as well as the experience of other students and their parents, Woodacre and Bane have created a welcome guide that will enable families to cope with the unique pressures of a college student that can hold far more emotional trauma that might be commonly expected. The text is "reader friendly", sensible, pragmatic, practical, and strongly recommended reading for every parent with a college bound student, and ever child leaving home for their first big academic adventure and independent campus oriented living experience.

Best book I've ever read! Most insightful book - every single parent and child should read this prior to college! I am my parents only daughter, so going away to college was tough on my mom and my dad. I only wish there was a book like this out when I had graduated years back. My own mom cried for a good 4 days when I left and then gave me guilt trips and we fought all the time on the phone for no reason (or that was what i thought of then) - her little baby was growing up and I wish she read that book because all I wanted was for her to treat me like an adult, all I wanted was alot of things, things that I thought couldnt be explained, but after reading this book - it makes sense now, everything makes sense. This book can be applied to any kind of person going to any school, whether it is a large public school, or a small private school, or a state school. The point of the matter is that leaving home and entering a new world of adulthood when there is very little transition is hard. Hard for the parents and hard for the children. My little cousin is going to off to college this fall to a public state school half way across the country. I gave this book to my aunt and cousin to read - quote from my cousin "i cant wait until college and to learn how to deal with my parents FINALLY, I read it in one sitting". I sat around the kitchen table with my family discussing how profound this book actually is,,, and how it can actually change your life. I can't wait for a sequel!

I graduated high school in 2006 and my mom got me/us this book. 8 years later I cant remember specifics of the book but i do remember reading it with my mom and how it helped calm some fears and concerns about moving out, being on my own away from home, the adjustments that needed to be made etc. I have since bought this book for family and coworkers with children going off to college. They have all loved it and find it valuable. The only thing i would recommend is to read it during senior yearif possible.
