My son is in pre-K. His pre-K class is in a trailer located beside the school, but it is not entirely fenced in like the K-5 building is. Every morning I walk my son into his classroom; he puts his book bag up and puts his folder where it belongs. While he is doing this I give the teacher any papers that were sent home to be signed, inform her of anything that I think is relevant to his health, education, and well-being. I try to keep this short, because I know the teacher is busy. I then remind him to listen to his teachers and he gives me a hug and kiss bye. I noticed this morning that some moms just go to the door and then walk away, some moms stay in the car as their child gets out, and they make sure their child makes it to the door and then they leave the parking lot. What draws the line between being a helicopter mom and being a concerned mom who is involved in their child's education and well-being

My daughter is also in prek. If you are a helicopter mom,then I guess so am I. I do the same thing and it has not seemed to be a problem. I walk her in,she puts her backpack away,I talk to her teacher for a minute and tell my daughter to have a good day.

"I have two in school and can't think of any reason why I will ever have to talk to the teacher every day."
I don't talk to the teacher everyday, just when I need too. I will tell the teachers Good Morning and then I make sure my son does what he needs to do (he has some behavior problems) and then I leave. I am there maybe 2-3 minutes at the most.
