Attack of the Helicopter Parents

I did a column for Yahoo! based on a new survey that came out on the effects of helicopter parenting. (The results were inconclusive and mixed: in some ways these students are happier in college when their parents are more engaged, but academically they are not doing as well). I think I did a good job of making this column evenhanded, since both people who rated it high and people who rated it low had widely varying views on the phenomenon I'm talking about.
