And make sure you're both set up with good videoconferencing and use it often.
In my opinion.
PS - my daughter went on archeology digs at that age. Not NYC, but I hear the part about striking out.
Thanks Early, that's the way it appears to be headed. The girls she met yesterday were quite welcoming - no Black Swans - so they will be a great support system, live and work together. And +1 on the video chats, although I can only imagine that the bedroom "in camera view" will be the only clean part of the room
Archaeology - very cool. My mom was a professional digger. Central America and Middle East. Collaborated with some of the greats. Where did your daughter dig? Does she still dig?
