Episode Description

Do you dash to your child’s school to defend him or her for the slightest issues that arise? Did you hesitate to write your child’s college admissions essay? Have you ever called your kid’s boss? If you answered yes to these questions, you may be a helicopter parent. Foster Cline, the psychiatrist who coined the term “helicopter parent,” explains how overprotective parents hinder their children’s development, and sociologist Annette Lareau, who authored the groundbreaking Unequal Childhoods, defends what she calls the “concerted cultivation” style of middle-class parenting. Ron Alsop, author of The Trophy Kids Grow Up, the definitive book on millennials’ ability to cope in the workforce, shares horrifying stories of parental over-involvement in the workplace and teen/parent coach Tammy Potosky gives tips on how to let go of your children gracefully. As always, there’ll be opportunities to win free gifts, including a free one-hour coaching session for you and your teen!
