One day, Susan Kopich - a mother of two children and an actress - discovered that she was so carried away by the role of a mother that her agent stopped calling her with proposals for new roles, the children grew up, and family life left much to be desired. And then she decided to give vent to her negative emotions and show all the delights of family life, colored with black humor. I think the plots in some of her photographs will seem familiar to those who know about family life firsthand.

Susan calls herself a helicopter mom. The concept of a parent-helicopter first appeared in 1969 in the United States in Between Parent & Teenager by Dr. Haim Ginott about the problems between parents and teenage children, while mentioning the words of one young man complaining that “my mother is hovering over me. like a helicopter. " Since then, the term has been used to refer to a special category of parents who are overly protective of their children and are completely focused on their lives. And this applies not only to the period of infancy and school years of life but also to the time when children grow up and become students.
