Snowplow parenting and the college admissions scandal

Have you heard of the phenomenon of “snowplow parenting”? It’s like helicopter parenting on steroids. How bad is it? A recent report notes that parents are setting up “play dates” for their children in college dorms.

To discuss this trend, and how it relates to the recent college admissions scandal, assistant editor of The College Fix Daniel Payne this week joined the famed Dr. Drew Pinsky and his co-host Leeann Tweeden on “Dr. Drew Midday Live” on KABC 790 AM radio in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Dr. Drew is a popular and respected media personality whose advice on topics such as love, addiction, narcissism and parenting has spanned decades and includes several books, television shows and podcasts.

Payne’s segment begins at 22:00 and concludes at 35:00. Listen now:
