Highly influential psychosocial theory

Trouble making decisions on their own
Weidman suggests that:
Student background characteristics +
Non-college reference groups +
Parental influence =
The amount of impact that an institution can have on any given student.
How can we work with parents collaboratively to assist students?
Encourage parents to have their children participate in co-curricular activities.
We know the impact they can have, but parent’s don’t always see them this way.
Teach parents about important things on your campus. They want to help, but need direction in knowing how to best do that. Educate parents about the services available to help students.
If your institutional size will allow for this, let parents meet faculty members. This way, they can more comfortably refer their sons/daughters to speak with faculty
