College Student Gets Restraining Orders Against 'Helicopter' Parents

Last updated 5 years ago

When a child moves away to attend college, it can be a difficult transition for both the child and parents. But when does concern for your child cross the line? It can be difficult for some parents to tell when they are going too far.

This ABC News video tells the story of one college student, Aubrey Ireland, who got a restraining order after claiming that her parents had gone from ordinary concern to outright stalking. Aubrey is a 21-year old theater major student who is an only child. She argued that her parents dictated her nearly every move and that they had even installed monitoring software on her phone and computer. Pursuant to the court order, her parents are now required to stay at least 500 feet away from Aubrey.

As this example demonstrates, family issues can be complicated and emotionally taxing. If you are struggling to resolve an issue, you can contact Moreno Family Law by calling our San Jose office at (408) 266-9011.
