Helicopter parents often send the unintentional message to their child saying that they are incompetent of doing things on their own - like the things they attempt to accomplish independently are wrong. Instead of letting their children experience a sense of autonomy by allowing them to accomplish things on their own, an overprotective parent would step in and take control; again promoting dependency. A lot of times, such dependency carries on into adulthood (Sade 1). Instead of being a mature, responsible adult and taking things into their own hands; they call on their parents whenever things get strenuous in their lives. Likewise, adults who still depend on their parents for everything do not mature mentally and sometimes do not have the skills needed to become successful on their own.
As we all know mother does know best, yet in some cases mother can do more harm than good. There is a big debate on how people are raising the newest generations and whether or not they are properly being introduced into the realities of our society. Are children being spoiled too much or not enough? This topic is thoroughly discussed by Alfie Kohn in his essay, “ The One-sided Culture War against Children” and by Nick Gillespie within his essay, “The Current State of Childhood: Is “Helicopter Parenting” or “Free-Range Childhood” Better for Kids?”. Although Kohn offers valid explanations, Gillespie does surpass Kohn’s explanations; parents need to be less overbearing and stop pampering their children.
A parent fears how their kid is going to end up. Some think every day and night of their they stress about it and think, how can I make them beater. Parents then act in a drastic or extreme mashers. Even though they believe their children will become beater people, extreme parenting can back fire because the parents freaked out about everything and they become to attack to their kid. In this paper I will tell you about extreme parents.
From what I could tell, the purpose of your article “Kids of Helicopter Parents Are Sputtering Out” was to inform parents of the dangers helicopter parenting has on college student’s mental health as well as how it affects them in the long run. To summarize, College students who have helicopter parents lack life skills which include effective decision making and problem solving. These students lack the ability to interact properly with others also they lack emotional and intellectual freedom along with executive functions. Additionally, they are unable to cope with any negative feelings and new experiences and haven’t been able to build resilience in these areas. Without these abilities they aren’t able to be a self-sufficient adult or make any decision without involving their parent.

A parent’s parenting styles are as diverse as the world we live in today. Nowadays, parents only want what is best for their children and their parenting styles plays a crucial role in the development of children which will in the long run, not only effect the child’s childhood years, but later prolong into their adult life as well.
With over three hundred million Americans and over six billion people worldwide parenting skills are essential to maintain a healthy society. Parenting involves many aspects and requires many skills. It is a time to nurture, instruct, and correct to develop fundamental skills children will need to be mature, responsible, and contributing adults to a society. There are four commonly identified parenting styles; authoritarian, authoritative, permissive, and uninvolved parenting. Of the four parenting styles, two remain on opposite ends of the parenting spectrum. These two styles; authoritarian, and permissive both have deleterious results that are often visible throughout different developmental stages, such as rebellious behavior. As well
It’s true that different parents have distinct parenting styles. Each child must be disparate from another due to cultural background and upbringing. Three major parenting styles that have been around are tiger, helicopter, and free range parenting. In tiger parenting, parents are strict, while in free range it is just the opposite, parents let loose and let their children be who they are and allow them to take risks. The article “I am a helicopter parent, and I don’t apologize” by Elizabeth Fairfield Strokes is an epitome of helicopter parenting and what goes on in a mind of helicopter parent. Helicopter parenting refers to "a style of parents who are over focused on their children," says Carolyn Daitch, Ph.D., director of the Center for the Treatment of Anxiety Disorders near Detroit and author of Anxiety Disorders: The Go-To Guide. "They typically take too much responsibility
Parenting styles were developed by Diana Baumrind in 1966 at the University of California at Berkeley (Diana Divecha Ph.D, 2015). Baumrind used a model of demands and responsiveness to determine three types of parenting styles. These styles were authoritarian, authoritative, and permissive parenting. Because permissive parenting lacks in demand and discipline, it will not be discussed in this essay. In Baumrind’s model, demands refers to the amount of control parents exert onto and expect from their children. Responsiveness refers to how a parent nurtures and empathizes with their child. Parents with high demands and high responsiveness follow the authoritative parenting style. On
Most of the middle-class families have gone through the decision of how much protection they should give their children. In the articles, “Bubble-Wrapping Our Children” by Michael Ungar and “For Some, Helicopter Parenting Delivers Benefits,” the authors explain what are the negative outcomes of over-parenting and the benefits of being a helicopter parent. In addition, over-parenting had made the children have emotional and psychological issues in the future, while helicopter parenting makes some kind of better relations between the parents and their offspring.

However, some of parents are very care to much about their children. they don’t think that can extremely harmful to their children and adolescents because of their to much overly involved in children's life and overprotective .In fact, Helicopter parenting family who is overly involved in their own children and Some Helicopter parenting family had Bubble-wrapping our children that overprotective parenting .they don’t think , when they do like this can be bored the children life,make their kid stress, feel alone and hopeless because of them too much overprotective.

Most parents take an interest in their child’s life from birth until they become an adult by picking and choosing what is best for them as much as they possibly can. Parents want to help their children to be as perfect as they can make them. Typically hovering parents spend a lot of money, time, and effort filling schedules things like with dance classes, baseball, and tutoring in order to have a ‘perfect’ child. As well as coming to their aid when they are in need, or their defense when they are in trouble. Help in making important, life changing decisions, like where to go to college at, or which career to pursue. When does helping become hovering? The generation of “Helicopter Parents” is becoming more and more prevalent in families. A
Helicopter parents hyper-involved in their children's life negatively affect them. A concerned mother’s letter explains why she disagreed with the new parent involvement policy of her son’s middle school. However, I oppose her position because, constant supervision results in hindered independence of children . Most importantly, preventing children from learning to manage their conflicts or learn from mistakes means they lack the skill to deal with them. Hovering parents disrupts the classroom, despite the appreciation of parent volunteers on the campus.
When regarding helicopter parenting, most of the time there is a misconception of what this type of parenting is really about. In which, I was included in this misconception, as before reading an excerpt from Alfie Kohn’s book, The Myth of the Spoiled Child: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom about Children and Parenting, I thought every aspect of helicopter parenting was bad for children. However, Kohn’s excerpt from his book has changed my point of view on excessive parenting. As before reading this excerpt I thought helicopter parents were overbearing with their children, but now I see them just as parents trying to carry out what is best for their children. Except I agree with Kohn to a certain extent, since not all helicopter parenting
Have ever wondered if helicopter parenting is useful or harmful to children? Some may say, helicopter parenting is good for children while others may say it's not. Michael Unger takes about the perils of helicopter parenting in the article " Bubble-Wrapping Our Children". On the other hand, Don Aucoin discuss the benefits when parents helicopter their children. Therefore, helicopter parenting is beneficial to children because it protects them from harm or dangers, help them live a better health life and help them meet their dreams.
The over involvement of parents can make the child develop psychological issues. They are shown to have a higher risk of depression, anxiety, lack self-confidence, and have low self-esteem (“Helicopter Parents” Stir Up Anxiety, Depression). It is shown that no matter what parenting technique is being used, every parents goal is to build their child’s self-esteem (Rutherford). Sadly, helicopter parenting does the exact opposite. Equally important, the persons lack of self- confidence comes from the over involvement of their parents in his/her childhood activities and academics. They never experienced failure or loss because the parents were always there to step in, so they never achieved anything to build their confidence (“Helicopter Parents” Stir Up Anxiety, Depression). It is common for a child with helicopter parents to develop depression when moving from their home to
