If you’ve ever been on an airplane, you know what to do if oxygen levels drop. The little yellow masks will drop down, and you will be directed to put yours on before helping your children with theirs. Why?

If you open your child’s toolbox of life skills, will you find self-discipline? Raise your hand if you can even define that word. Don’t feel bad if you can’t.

Okay, parents of teens! Picture yourself having one of those “tough discussions” with your child. (Okay, it’s really an argument.) You’re sternly insisting, “It needs to be THIS way!” Your teen is emphatically arguing, “No, it has to be THAT way!”

I’ve been binge-watching “Downton Abbey.” I’ve almost finished Season 5 and will then have to be patient until the final season is available on Netflix. “Really,” I tell my husband, “it’s not an addiction. I can stop any time!” (Just one more episode!)

Are you a helicopter parent? If you’re not sure, here’s a quick test:

  1. Do you check your child’s grade portal more than once a day?
  2. Do you lie awake nights worrying that if your child fails a class, his chances for success in life are over?
  3. Do you find that more than 50% of the conversations you have with your child involve her school performance?
