The worst part about helicopter parents is that although their intentions are good, helicopter parents do nothing but skyrocket their kid's anxiety and shelter them from the outside world, therefore denying their kids the opportunity to face adversity and grow as a result.

I work in a university. The amount of entitled parents who think they have a right to their son or daughter's records is appalling. When we tell them that we can't share information due to confidentiality and privacy, they are outraged. "But it's my child!" No, it is your adult child and you don't have a right to their records.

Nut jobs telling the neighbors they need to put their kids to bed at seven because said nut jobs' own children got jealous when they figured out that not everyone has an insanely early bedtime isn't being a "helicopter parent". That's just being crazy.

Mom Decides To Plan 'Literally Nothing' For Her Kids This Summer, And People Are Grateful For Her Honesty

Kids need time to just explore and do nothing. Too many of them get bored so easily if they're not entertained 24/7 because of all the activities that have been planned for them. It's important for them to learn how to entertain themselves and perhaps discover they enjoy exploring in the yard, reading, drawing, etc.

That's how we did it back in the 80s. Except the 2 weeks for swimming lessons in the middle of summer we were left to our own devices to play outside, explore, adventure. It was great! I wish I could do it again! I turned out pretty good too, work a good job, own my own house, bought a new to me vehicle last year.

I think its really important too for kids to BE bored at times - so that they develop their own resources for entertaining and amusing themselves, rather than relying on scheduled organised activities to constantly entertain them.

As I read it, the FBI is investigating whether Jane may have fudged the numbers of a financially struggling university to qualify for borrowing money in order to save it. That's what it comes down to. When the Sanders' get investigated, it's because they're still trying to do good in this world.
yesterday at 18:14
I'm republican leaning... but this was filed by a republican campaign manager during the election. And the only claim is Mrs sanders claimed a certain amount of pledged donor money had been pledged...and not enough came in... If you're focusing on this...and not the number of times trump has been sued or investigated...then you might be a little bit partisan blind.

yesterday at 17:22
Why don't we focus on the cause of violence and not on symptoms? The vast majority of gun violence is gang-related. Gangs exist because of gang culture in inner cities. Those exist because of a lack of opportunity. If we push for opportunity and advancement among those parts of society, the symptom will go away.

1. Marriage Advice
Our next door neighbors were going through a bitter divorce. We often heard them yelling and fighting leading up to it, so it was no surprise.
One day, I saw Mom & Dad embracing, very affectionately, and I said, "I sure hope that you two never become like them next door."
Dad looked at me, and said: "We don't yell, we discuss. We don't fight, we disagree, then find a way to work it out so it's good for both of us."

"I wish I never had you, my life would be so much better." I've never forgotten how my mother said those words when I was 12 or so. Even if you're mad at your children, you never say those words. Now we don't speak, and I've spent my life trying to be the opposite of that woman. On the other end of things, my father is wonderful and my step mom is the mother I wish I had!
