Dudes and Dudettes…have any of you ever heard the term ‘helicopter parents’ before? Sure don’t know about all of you, but yesterday was the first day yours truly has ever heard that term used before…I must really be behind the times and such.
Nevertheless, here are a few reports about this story, the first is a shortened version…the third link will have a much more detailed report that should be read, including pictures.

Do you know any helicopter parents, or are you perhaps guilty of being one? Well listen up! In a bizarre stalking case, a college student in Ohio took legal action against her overbearing parents with a restraining order.
Aubrey Ireland claims her parents would drive 600 miles from Kansas to her school in Ohio to check on her. She says they accused her of illegal drug use, promiscuity and mental illness. They even made her put keyloggers on her computer to keep track of all the keystrokes she was making. Think it can’t be any worse? Ireland alleges she had to leave Skype on some nights so her mother could see that she was in her dorm sleeping.
After the college senior broke off contact with her parents, they stopped paying her tuition. The University of Cincinnati stepped in by paying for her last year of school. She was able to convince a judge that her parents were stalking her and was granted a restraining order.
Ireland said in a statement, “It’s just been really embarrassing and upsetting to have my parents come to my university when I’m a grown adult and just basically slander my name and follow me around.
