Also, we hear from NPR's Domenico Montanaro for the latest politics headlines, including President Trump's response to Harvey and the storm's political ramifications. And, we revisit a conversation on "helicopter parents" — and why a former dean of freshmen at Stanford University says overparenting can lead to kids being unprepared for college.
