Aubrey Ireland, College Student, Wins Restraining Order Against Helicopter Parents
[link to www.huffingtonpost.com]

Sometimes parents just don't know when to let go, but it's rare when a judge needs to intervene.

That was the case for Aubrey Ireland, a 21-year-old music theater major at College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. She convinced a judge to grant her a restraining order against her parents, David and Julie Ireland.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Ireland told the court that despite making the dean's list, her parents would routinely drive 600 miles from Kansas to Ohio to make unannounced visits to her at school. Then they accused her of illegal drug use, promiscuity and mental illness.

They actually watched her on Skype while she slept every night! These people have serious psychological issues, and need help!

I know how it feels. My mother was too controlling in some ways, but never anything this bad! Poor girl! She is finally free!

Wow Dease, that does take the cake.

I sympathize with parents whose kids are far away - but if you laid a good foundation, you have to let go a bit.


Many of my fellow parents considered me lazy because I refused to check if my children did their homework.

We never once had a homework battle - and guess what - they did their homework all the time.

I have no idea why that worked, but it did.
if mighty oaks are the king of the forest, beeches are surely its queen.

It worked because you earned their respect. Instead of just yelling at them to work hard, you probably worked hard yourself. Kids learn by actions more than words.

It was the same thing with me and cleaning. My mother never gave me many chores growing up, but she was always cleaning .I was always watching her do it. By the time I reached high school, I had become somewhat of a neat freak myself.

She was over-bearing on other things though, like driving. When I first started driving, I was only allowed to drive to school and back. I was a straight A student, and had never given her any problems but it was a control thing. She acted like I was going to drive off and join a cult or something. I remember I had been driving for maybe a month, and I wanted a snack, so I pulled over at a gas station on the way home. When I walked in with the bag, it was a huge deal.

It works because the child learns to be responsible for his/her work.

The result is a sense of ownership and pride in the recognition which is earned. Anything else is a disaster.

The parents who call you lazy are robbing their children of a valuable life lesson.

The earlier children learn to take over responsibility for themselves- the better.

LAZY, pfft. What are they then? I´ll tell you... egocentric. "How will it look, if Johnny doesn´t do his homework?" Parents living vicariously through the achievement of the children which they are "training" to perform to obtain success. These kind of parents land in the same bucket for me as the ones that are wantonly negligent. Both are selfish and self-centered.
