We've talked before about helicopter parents, the phenomena of super attentive parenting. Today for our "Parenting on the Edge" segment, we're going to look at it from another perspective -- the teacher's.

Joining Madeleine is Robert Wilder, a high school English teacher in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a parent of two, and author of the book Daddy Needs a Drink.
