About the Book
Phyllis Thompson, a self-proclaimed “Helicopter Mom,” shares information, inspiration, and useful advice to readers who are apprehensive about sending their beloved children off to college. As a parent, she’s devoted to providing advice, protection, and guidance; though it hasn’t been easy for her to maintain this commitment and balance life as a self-proclaimed helicopter mom. Read about her struggles with sending her firstborn off to college and learn from her mistakes, insights, and experiences, as well as the process she recommends to overcome one’s own helicopter parent tendencies.
This book was designed for moms of college-bound children. It’s often difficult for helicopter moms to suppress their parental feelings of being overly cautious and protective, and to embrace the fact that one day they must let go of their children. In this story, read of one helicopter mom’s valuable lesson learned about how to become a mother that “hovers, not smothers,” and one who lets go so they can grow.
