Sarah Long loves her son Steven and wants him to have a wonderful time at college, while getting a good education. However, she remembers her succession of wild college roommates and wants him to live in a quiet apartment, alone.
Steven wants to live as close to campus as possible with as much freedom as possible. He does not want to waste these precious college years living with too many restrictions.
Parenting an older teen can be like walking a parenting tightrope: granting just enough freedom for the young adult to grow into a responsible individual while providing enough protection to ensure the child’s safety. Sarah turned to the Internet for advice and found several sites that described suitable apartments in Atlanta, even for an single college student with a limited budget.
Sarah and Steven checked out several Atlanta apartments and found a one bedroom flat close to Steven’s school, with covered parking, internet, furnished, and affordable. Sarah was thrilled it was in a safe neighborhood and close to shopping; Steven was happy it was within walking distance of a couple of famous college haunts.
Using technology, the Long family found a place for their student to live that met his mother’s desire for his health and safety and his desire to be close to campus and student life. His new apartment should give him the opportunity to explore the fun of campus life when he wants excitement and still give him peace and quiet when it is time to buckle down and study.
