Helicopter parenting - Life & Other Catastrophes

In this week's episode of 'Life & Other Catastrophes', ABC Melbourne's Ali Moore and Jean Hailes' Professor Jane Fisher discuss helicopter parenting. How much is too much involvement in our kids' lives? When is it OK to bail them out from trouble, and when is it OK to let them sort it out themselves? Listen to what Ali and Jane – and callers – had to say.

Life & Other Catastrophes airs on Mondays at 3.30pm, on ABC Radio Melbourne's Drive. Listen to previous episodes.
