The Upside of Helicopter Parenting: Engaging Parents to Reduce First-Year Student Drinking
Earle, Andrew M.; LaBrie, Joseph W.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n3 p319-330 2016
University personnel tend to view "helicopter" parents as problematic. This article presents an alternative view in which these highly engaged parents can instead be utilized productively. The authors describe and assess the fidelity of a novel program in which involved parents were effectively leveraged to mitigate student alcohol-related risk. The feasibility of utilizing similar programs at other schools is discussed as are implications for alcohol risk prevention.
