Rick Majerus on “Helicopter Parents” “Parents today want to take all the pain, all the heartache, and all the sadness out of their kids’ lives. All the things that make you a better person, a better coach, a better teacher – all the things that are so much the fabric of life. I’m so much better for every loss I’ve had. You become so much better a person for all the bad things that happen to you. But all these helicopter parents, they just hover there, and they want to take all that away from their kids. The don’t want them to fight through it.”
