Why parents hover - Deepstash

Why parents hover

  • Fear of consequences. Parents might worry that their child may receive a low grade or get rejected from the sports team. Most of these consequences, such as unhappiness, effort or hard work, are not life-threatening.
  • Feelings of anxiety. Concern about the economy can push parents to take more control, believing they can keep their children from being hurt.
  • Overcompensation. A parent may try to remedy a lack from their own upbringing by overdoing it in their children.
  • Peer pressure from other over-involved parents.
