I would like for everyone to share their worse Helicopter Parent stories to illustrate how ruinous this behavior is for a childs healthy development. I know of a parent who created spreadsheets and had every minute of her daughters day planned out for her and organized her study schedule to keep her on track. As a result, her daughter is completely dependent on her mom to keep her organized and has to be chided to do her homework and study. Had she empowered the kid a long time ago to be responsible, this might not be the case. She also had her house up for Sale when her other daughter went to the University of Michigan to move closer to her while in College. She did eventually take the house off the market thank God!
Please share sinilar crazy Helicopter parent stories so others who are hovering and managing every aspect of their kids lives can see how ruinous this type of invasive parenting can be.
