Egregious helicoptering

This community helped me a lot when my kids first started college. Both graduated, but one is now back, going for her MA. I think I've got the basics of not driving them crazy down, and this place was an assist. (I did buy them both solar/windup radio/flashlights that can charge cell phones as part of their holiday presents, but I only said I wouldn't helicopter, not that I wouldn't be a mom. Besides, they were both in the path of Hurricane Sandy, although they had no problems other than a brief loss of electricity.)

I thought of Whirlybirds when I saw this story about parents who took helicoptering to such an extreme the judge grounded them with a restraining order. I present it for your bogglement.
