Concerns have been growing in recent years regarding some parents' over involvement in their Millennial children's college lives. The phenomenon has been popularly coined as "helicopter parenting" (HP). Meanwhile, Millennials' increasing mental health issues, as reported by three large, national surveys, illustrate the necessity of understanding the HP concerns. The poster presents the results of a study testing the extent to which HP predicts college students' stress outcomes, and the moderation effects that parental warmth plays in the relationship between HP and stress. The Structure Equation Modeling approach was used in a sample of college students (N = 551) from a public Midwestern university. Implications for counseling and counselor education are discussed.
