Bethany Douglas “Helicopter Mom” Book Signing Sept. 16 at Library Center

September 6, 2017 — Author Bethany Douglas will sell and sign copies of her book, “Helicopter Mom: Stop Hovering Over Your Children and Lift!” from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16, in the Library Center concourse, 4653 S. Campbell Ave.

We’ve all heard the term ‘helicopter mom’ – parents who ‘hover’ over their children in an attempt to keep them happy, safe, healthy and alive. They hover because they fear. “Helicopter Mom” directly addresses the real life terror that all parents face with fearing for their children. Specifically designed for mothers, the book gives a Christian, biblical perspective on how to overcome these fears from the unique point of view of a helicopter flight nurse and mom who has vast experience in ‘hovering.’ There are anecdotes, stories, aviation information and more that knit together to bring about biblical lessons and encouragement that parents can relate to.
