For real – a new study shows some parents are actually going away to school WITH their kids!
Dr. Judith Locke has been studying the idea of helicopter parenting for years and is now spilling results that show some pretty crazy cases.
Including one in Canada where a Mom asked to sleep on the floor of their kid’s dorm room (yes, ON campus) for 2 weeks to make sure their child settled in.
(Seriously – I can’ stop shaking my head!)
Dr. Locke says she found cases where parents were not only picking their kids classes, but also editing their assignments and even complaining to profs if they thought the kid’s grade was too low.
Holy crap. Hey…helicopter parents…. I’m begging you… Please empower your kids with knowledge and confidence – so they can adult! I ask you on behalf of all of us who share a world with them!
