You don't want to be labeled as a helicopter parent. But when you're kids aren't at home, how much contact is just enough, and how much is too much?
Is it too invasive for you to know where your children are at all times?
You don't want to over-do it, and have the end result be that your child resents your ability to contact them at anytime; especially when they're out with their friends.
But, are you well within your rights to call them, check up on them and find out where they are and when they'll be home?
What about GPS on their phones? Is this too intrusive?
There are so many ways to use technology to communicate with your kids and even have some fun at the same time. Apps like Find a Phone, FaceTime, Skype and others can close that gap and ease your mind when your kids are not with you.
Dr. Cori Cross helps you figure out how much is enough when it comes to keeping in touch with your kids when they're not at home.
