Calli is definitely the child of helicopter parents.  They are want all their children to have a passion that they pursue.  Alex is a basketball star but Calli thinks her dad is more passionate about it than her brother.  Becca is a figure skater who may not enjoy it as much as she says.  But Calli is not going to be pressured into doing something she is not passionate about.  And she surely is not going to shine in the athletic world.  When she meets a second grader with many problems, Calli may just have found her passion.
