Peter Schwartz: Low-Down, Dirt-Poor, Hands-to-Heaven College Application Parental Blues

Peter Schwartz from the Huffington Post has writen a funny, yet sorta sad piece about how he has been fretting about his son’s college applications.  The funny part is that he writes with just the right amount of self-mockery to help the reader undertand he is embarrassed that he is such a helicoper parent.  But he is a helicopter parent.  He talks about how “we” applied to Yale, when actually it was (or should have been) his son who did the applying.

I hope Peter won’t need heavy duty psychotherapy if his son is not accepted to his first choice colleges.
