Why Call Us?
Article about the effects of "helicopter" parenting on college students. Published by Slate.com.
College is a time of exciting change. For many of us it is the first taste of true independance. The stresses of living away from friends and family and shouldering the responsobilites of adulthood can be a shock for some, while for others it is an exhilaratingly new experience. For most it is likely to be somewhere in between these two extremes with many challenges both large and small. Counseling Services is here to provide support during your time at Bard.
