CEU Course Description
While the actions of over-involved parents may be well-intentioned, perceptions of “helicopter parents” have been shifting from supportive to over-intrusive. The purpose of this brief, intermediate level continuing education course is to summarize a study of undergraduate college students that evaluated the relationship between over-involved parenting, attachment, and college life outcomes. The course material, provided by James Madison University (JMU) Scholarly Commons, provides an overview of the concept of over-involved parenting and its consequences, and outlines methods and results of the study.
