What are helicopter parents?

Dec 15th, 2014

"Helicopter parents" is often used to define a group of parents who engage in the practice of over-parenting. Helicopter parents are accused of being obsessed with their children's education, safety,extracurricular activities, and other aspects of their children's lives. Critics have criticized helicopter parents for over protecting their children and for failing to instill them with a sense of independence and a can-do attitude. Helicopter parents are also accused of over programming their children, and for failing to allow them free time to play and explore on their own. Helicopter parents defend their parenting practices, saying they are only looking out for their children's safety and education, and that they are proud to be so involved in their children's lives.
