How helicopter parents are ruining college students | Washington Post | September 2014

The kids who have been raised by parents who watched their every
move, checked their grades online hourly, advocated for them endlessly
and kept them busy from event to activity to play date are tucked away
in college. But that doesn’t mean their parents have let go. They make
themselves known to schools, professors, counselors and advisers. And
yes, college presidents.

But those parents are forgetting some
very important lessons in Parenting 101, and that is how to help a child
learn how to really thrive.
