Presentation: Helping or Hovering?
Guest Speaker: Dr. Meredith McGinley
Location: Student Center Cinema, 7:00pm- 8:00pm
Date: November 13, 2019

Despite good intentions, parents’ hovering can backfire. This presentation will focus on the definition and prevalence of helicopter parenting, how exactly it undermines well-being and moral development, and future directions in this novel area.

Dr. McGinley is an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department. She received her MA and PhD from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Developmental Psychology. Her research and grant work focuses on the influence of parents, peers, victimization, culture, and personality on helping behaviors and adjustment across the lifespan.

Going strong for 15 years, Science Night has become a staple of programs featured on Parkside's campus. Created by physics professor Dr. Mohazzabi, the series features exciting presentations and lectures about various math and science topics and issues. The series was designed to be enjoyed by students of all ages ranging from middle school age to 100+ year olds. This is a free event open to community members and of course UW-Parkside students. Follow us on Facebook for information about the next Science Night and other special events.

Science Nights occur from 7-8 pm every second Wednesday of the month during fall and spring semesters.

All are welcome!
