LA Moms Blog: Helicopter parenting
Please check out my latest LA Moms Blog post, "Helicopter Parent Hits Some Turbulence."
If you didn't catch the Time magazine article "Helicopter Parents: The Backlash Against Overparenting," I happened to read it just before CC took a tumble and had to visit the emergency room. And I had been "hovering" a mere 10 feet away from her.
It's a struggle to know when you're hovering too closely, but I'm hoping I won't really have to worry about it until I'm contemplating moving next door to her college dorm.
