Woman Obtained Restraining Order Against Helicopter Parents

Got helicopter parents? A 21-year-old theatre student named Aubrey Ireland does, and she had to go to court to obtain a civil stalking restraining order against them after telling the judge that they attempted to control all aspects of her daily life:

The dean's list student's complaints against her parents began when she realized they'd installed monitoring software on her computer and her phone. They paid unannounced visits, traveling 600 miles from their home in Kansas, to meet with Aubrey's department head.

They also accused their daughter of promiscuity, doing drugs, and having mental issues to the point where they were considering going to court to order that she get treatment.

"My mom has always been very overly involved," Ireland said. "I would have to get on Skype all the time to show them that I was in my dorm room, or there were nights I had to leave my Skype on all night and my mom would watch me basically sleep."

Wow, as I read this I kept thinking: Helicopter parents? what are helicopter parents? then it hit me, I'm glad she got the restraining order, if she was 16 then it would be different... but for a while I thought this was on par with the lady who married a dolphin, you know like literal "helicopter" parents

They may be crazy, but if she goes the court route, maybe she should be prepared to fund the rest of her schooling on her own.
