Balancing growth: Are you a helicopter parent?

Do you remember when your baby grew into a toddler, and your toddler grew even more?  During the early stages, we made all of the decisions, and had the final word, but with growth comes opinions, observations, and questions.

How are you handling the growth stage?  Are you overprotective, or excessive with your control of your children’s lives, or are you trying to live through them? As you already know, today, according to Google, society describes this behavior as “a parent who takes overprotective or excessive interest in the life of their child or children.”

I’m really interested in finding out more about how you are handling this phase in your child’s or children’s lives. I’m even more excited to hear your stories about balancing growth, and letting go. These stories will be highlighted with profiles in my next series of books detailing the lives of women just like us who are balancing the work, life, family, and career issues. Let’s talk.
