Waiting for winter : [stories] by John O'Hara( Book )

37 editions published between 1964 and 1974 in English and Polish and held by 1,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helicopter parents have become a recent phenomenon in higher education. Who are these parents and why have they landed on our college campuses? This monograph examines parental involvement in higher education by looking at the history of the relationship between students and institutions and institutional responses to this phenomenon. It explores alternative theoretical frameworks that highlight the benefits of strong parental relationships for today's college students, paying particular attention to the variables of gender, race, and socioeconomic class and how they inform the student-parent relationship. This text concludes with implications for practice and suggestions for policy so that all parents are included in our institutional efforts, not just the ones making all the noise. -- Back cover
