Something You Need to Think About When Sending Your Child to College

For High School Seniors, February and March are usually crunch time for making decisions on where they will be spending the next four years of their lives. If they are college bound, they will be heading to their new campuses in less than six months.Per the National Center for Education Statistics, 20.7 million students are expected to enroll at universities in the United States, for September 2017, 13.3 million will be living away from home studying and attending at four year colleges.

The State of New York, recently legalized the sale of “small fireworks or sparkling devices” in some of the counties north of New York City in the weeks leading up to July 4th.  (Fireworks are still illegal in New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut).  Time will tell if this new legislation will lead to a huge spike in the statistics.  I have included a list of safety tips, below, so that you do not become an “emergency room” patient. One of the statistics that is almost never reported on the news is rather amazing. Independence Day is typically the busiest day of the year for fires, and approximately 20,000 f ...
