Carolyn's son is 17-years old and he's planning to attend college next year in New York City. As a mom, she's struggling with whether she wants her son to leave the state or even leave home at all. Like most Helicopter Moms, Carolyn's not ready for him to grow up. What is she going to do? How will she tackle this situation? Her son is fed up with the hovering, overbearing and overprotective mother she's become.
The term "helicopter parent" was originally coined by Foster W. Cline, M.D. and Jim Fay, in their 1990 book entitled, "Parenting with Love and Logic: Teaching Children Responsibility". According to Cline and Fay, "like helicopters, mothers hover closely to their children, never being too far away or out of reach" (whether the child needs them or not).
