Students are likely to experience awkward or unpleasant obstacles throughout their educational careers. Whether it's a bad grade, an embarrassing social interaction or a disagreement with a teacher, it's difficult for parents to know when to intervene and when to step back.

MPR News host Mike Mulcahy talked about being a supportive parent to students from pre-kindergarten to high school with Susan Walker, associate professor in the Department of Family Social Science at the University of Minnesota, and Monica Potter, program director for Early Childhood and Parenting Education for Robbinsdale Area Schools.
