Easter Hunt Action - Rabbit Ransom

Last year (2011) parents got unruly at an Easter egg hunt in Bancroft park in Colrado Springs, Colorado and as a result the event was canceled this year. The parents were jumping in the rope that roped off the perimeter of the hunt to help their children find eggs.

Experts said these are what are called "helicopter parents" who are involved in every part of their lives so their kid doesn't fail. Ron Alsop, author of "The Trophy Kids grow up." said, "They couldn't resist getting over the rope to help their kids."
