Cathy Classics by Cathy Guisewite for March 07, 2021
Mom: Etc. For years I hovered over my daughter, orchestrating every moment of her life. Then I learned that hovering robs children of decision-making skills and the wisdom that can only come from making one's own mistakes. Now I no longer hover. Cathy out of frame: MOM! Mom: Now I merely open my arms and leap right down into the deep end with her!! Once I was a "helicopter parent". Now I'm an "inner tube parent".
