The helicopter parent

Helicopter parents may be involved in a child's life that is over-managing and overprotecting. 

  • In toddlerhood, a helicopter parent might constantly hover over the child, always directing his play and behaviour. 
  • In elementary school, they may help too much with homework or ensure a child gets a specific teacher or coach. 
  • In high school or college-aged students, helicopter parents help to complete tasks children can manage on their own, such as organising a class schedule or calling a professor.
