In her second decade of recovery since discovering a tendency spin like a whirling dervish, Becky still finds the occasional need to curb the urge. Writing as BeckyB, she explores the middle ground between over helping and under helping. Sharing her own stories, as well as experiences of anonymous readers seeking guidance, BeckyB explores the boundaries in each situation, offers confessions of overstep, empathy for motivation, and absolution for those willing to admit their own hovering urges.
Becky adapted a version of the AA 12-step program for helicopter addicts (‘copter parents and others). “I admit that I sometimes feel powerless over my urge to help my children, my in-law children, my grandchildren, my parents, and my friends.” Join BeckyB in recovery.
