Are you a HELICOPTER PARENT? If so, why?

Helicopter parents hover over their children, swooping down at a moment’s notice to solve their problems for them. Are they loving parents or developmental disablers? Why do they complain to professors and administrators when their children struggle in college? Is there a connection to the fact that their children seem unable, unwilling, or unmotivated to act as adults, take responsibility for their education, and solve their own problems?

    Dear Songbirdmom,

    I am sorry that you and your husband disagree. If he would like to discuss this with an experienced college administrator who would eagerly offer some advice, I would be glad to do so.
