<p>MSNBC.com is reporting that the new area for overbearing parents to help their kids is in the job search process:</p>
I recently received a call from the mother of a Ph.D. student who was applying to jobs on behalf of the daughter and thought there was nothing wrong with it, he said. The mother asked for suggestions for what jobs she should apply to on behalf of the daughter and I told her none.</p>
<p>...Parents are also popping up at job fairs with their children.
<p>Apparently, once a parent has the helicopter controls in hand, it's hard to give them up.</p>
