Society for Adolescent Medicine Meeting to Focus on 'E-Teens' and How Adolescents Incorporate Technology and Health

But increases in technology mean more methods for parents to be involved in their college students' lives, and hovering seems to have increased. The Hot Topic session, "Helicopter Parents: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly," will examine how beneficial or detrimental "heli
