Talk to Other Involved Parents: Many helicopter parents create study groups to help their kids and their friends prepare for certain exams. By pulling their personal resources together, professional parents teach subjects in which they are experts. In my local school district, for example, such a group was formed to prepare kids for the SATs. A biologist teaches science, a history professor teaches social studies, and a CPA teaches advanced math. Creating or joining a group such as this for your middle school and high school children, would benefit not just your child, but many students.
