Overprotected and over directed, American children are wilting under the weight of well-meaning parents. In the pursuit of keeping them safe and creating an impressive resumé of extracurricular activities to wow admissions boards, over parenting smothers children across socioeconomic classes. This thoughtful film follows education professionals and reformed helicopter parents who seek and offer solutions for developing more confident, independent young people while restoring some joy and freedom to childhood. The local Long Island Patchogue School District is showcased in the film, as school Superintendent, Michael Hynes struggles to add recess, meditation, and longer a lunch period in the schools!
