As college students headed back to school this fall, Merriam Webster announced that “helicopter parent” was now an entry in their dictionary. Helicopter Parents are an important topic. Those same parents may now be dealing with the Empty Nest Syndrome.
I was privileged to be a guest this fall on Wisconsin Public Radio’s Joy Cardin show as together we explored the topics of helicopter parents and empty nests. For those of us sending our students off to college, there’s lots of food for thought during this interview.
Listen to the Wisconsin Public Radio interview and then let us know your thoughts. Have you just sent someone off to college? Do you consider yourself a helicopter parent? How are you coping with your empty nest?
