Episode 36: Helicopter Parents 2.0 with Di Murphy
September 2, 2015 | No comments
Helicopter Parenting is developing a generation of weak, feeble, and dependent children who then become adults and have no idea what to do. No wonder so many Millennials live in their momma’s basement (yes, student debt & global economy blah blah blah too) and suffer from depression. Thy’ve never been allowed to win, lose, or draw on their own.
We welcome Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) back to the show to vent her frustrations as an educator of having to deal with over-involved parents and their “prodigies”.

Be a Man. Be a Father. Go Dad Mode. | I’m a first time dad and have no idea what I’m doing. Fortunately, no one does, so we’re all in this together. Let’s chat. | It’s more difficult than ever to raise normal, level-headed children in this politically correct, everyone gets a trophy, “if you serve my child high fructose corn syrup I’ll sue your ass” society. Our goal should be to raise humble and hardworking individuals instead of the self-entitled princess or douche bags that our culture has been churning out recently. On Dad Mode, we’ll discuss the ways we might achieve said goal and the roadblocks that will be in our way.
