Description

In the 1990s and early 2000s, many people complained about “helicopter parents.” Since then, new technologies have made it possible for parents to monitor their children’s experiences even more closely. Whether their children are in grade school, high school, college, graduate school, or the workplace, parents can use phone calls, text messages, email, apps, websites, and even location tracking to follow and assist their children as they see fit. In this session, spouses and sociologists Linda Renzulli and Jeremy Reynolds debate whether such technology encourages harmful surveillance or helpful support.
