Fun Segment on CNN


I did a really fun segment on CNN recently about helicopter parents in the workplace. We discussed the usual bugaboos -- parents who show up for job interviews and that sort of thing. A couple of things made me laugh afterwards: (1) the number of people who called me saying they had seen me on TV while they were working out at the gym (good for you!), (2) the cheers I've gotten for going on CNN and advocating "tough love," and (3) the fact that I didn't get preempted by Paris Hilton -- an indignity I don't think I would have survived.
