Flying without a Helicopter

For the most part, parents want the best for their kids and they often go to great lengths to get it.  But parenting is hard.  There’s just no other way to say it.  It’s harder today because there are so many choices and there’s so much advice it’s hard to know what’s right.  It’s enough to make parents sick with worry.  We’re here to stop that, to relieve you from the worry, and to help you let go and let your kids develop into healthy, well-adjusted, hopefully happy young adults.  After all, that’s what we want most for them, right?
