It's not my purpose to attack. It's my purpose to help. My point is that what he's doing almost certainly is not helping and could well be hindering his son's prospects. Therefore my advice is that he stop.
He didn't want to hear it. I got that message loud and clear.
That is bull midlo as you did not get message "loud and clear" and you continue to attack, (with attaboy from greenlight). You essentially said that because I filled out a questionaire I was a "helicopter parent." You now keep trying to defend that position, which continues the animosity. You don't know me or my son, one way or the other. I don't mind advice, but you generalized and went over the line. You make good points, but please realize that some of your comments were based on limited information and are ridiculous. If you are going to keep giving feedback, which you are more than welcome to do so as you are very knowledgeable, please refrain from making huge assumptions on limited information, especially when thread was not meant for you.
