Parents, Leave Those Kids Alone!

Parental Love

The front page of today's New York Times has a great read on how parents are having trouble separating from their college aged kids.

The problem is so acute that many schools now have formal separation ceremonies.

Many of you may find this surprising.  But it comes as old news to our "Parenting on the Edge" contributor, Robert Wilder 

He's a high school teacher in New Mexico and the author of Daddy Needs a Drink. 

He spends a lot of time observing parents who "helicopter" over their children. 

Last week he told us about a mother who actually followed her daughter to college and MOVED IN WITH HER.

Stay tuned for more crazy parenting tales...
