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?
If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
