Helicopter Parenting

Some parents think that love means revolving their lives around their children. They are helicopter parents. They hover over and then rescue their children whenever trouble arises. Theyre forever running lunches, permission slips, band instruments, and homework assignments to school. Theyre always pulling their children out of jams. Not a day goes by when theyre not protecting little junior from something usually from a growing experience he needs or deserves. As soon as their children send up an SOS flare, helicopter parents, who are ready hovering nearby, swoop in and shield the children from teachers, playmates, and other elements that appear hostile. While today these loving” parents may feel they are easing their childrens path into adulthood, tomorrow the same children will be leaving home and wasting the first eighteen months of their adult life flunking out of college or meandering about getting their heads together.” Such children are unequipped for the challenges of life. Their significant learning opportunities were stolen from them in the name of love.

Helicopter parents fail to prepare their kids to meet that kind of world.


The irony is that helicopter parents are often viewed by others as model parents.
