Facts about Helicopter Parenting
If you are the type of parent that becomes the "shadow" of your child and always interfering with his actions and decisions, then you are undoubtedly a helicopter parent.
Helicopter parenting, a term created by Foster Cline and Jim Fay, is one of the recognized modernized types of parenting, and it is manifested by being overly protective and manipulative to the kids. Helicopter parents are too much alert over their children and always on the rescue even on the initial signs of trouble, disappointment or other incidents and situations a child can be harmed or cause pain.
Distinct Behaviors of A Helicopter Parent
According to The Gottman Institute, three distinct behaviors are being exemplified by helicopter parents, and these are the following:
- Information seeking attitude: Parents are eager to know the everyday routines of their children like their schedules and whereabouts. Moreover, they also want to know other matters to their children like their decisions, accomplishments and even their grades.
- Direct intervention: Parents also interfere with the children's conflicts, fighting to almost every battle they have.
- Autonomy limitation: Parents control their children's lives because they prevent them to face the harshness of this world by helping them not to make mistakes to the extent that they fail to support their decisions.
The Implications of Helicopter Parenting
Generally, overprotective parents create a lasting impact on their child's personality because it only prolongs his childhood phase.
On the various researches about different types of parenting and its effects on every child, here are some of the negative effects on children with helicopter parents:
- Children with helicopter parents are less open to new ideas and opportunities, and they are more anxious, helpless and conscious about themselves.
- Kids with intrusive parents and have high expectations of them like in their academic performances are more critical to themselves and more susceptible to become depressed. This behavior is also called maladaptive perfectionism. It happens because these parents make their kids feel that what they do is not always good enough.
- Helicopter parenting is also proven to be associated with poor functioning in emotional matters, decision-making, and other capabilities like the academic capacities of the children.
- Helicopter parents also affect the social stability of their children because they keep on helping and involving themselves to them even if it is not encouraged to do so.
- Children fail to succeed in using their abilities because their parents always step into almost everything that happens in their lives.
How to Break the Habit of being a Helicopter Parents
Now that the negative effects of helicopter parents are revealed, one way to put our children into vulnerability and other issues like anxiety and depression is to break the habit of being overprotective and controlling to them.
How to break free from this parenting style? Try to do the following:
- Show support to your child by listening to them and not pushing what you want for them.
- Cease yourself from doing everything to your child, even their homework.
- Not unless it is life-threatening matter, avoid helping your child to escape the consequences of their actions or decisions. They can learn more by letting them experience the results of what they did.
- Teach and encourage your children to speak for themselves, and not be the spokespersons for them.
- Embrace your child's identity, and that includes their weaknesses. Help them to use their skills and abilities to achieve their aspirations.

Guide to Modern Parenting 0
Guide to Modern Parenting
Society continues to embrace new perspectives in almost every facet of its system. And as it continues to change, so is the people for them to meet the expectations and demands this alteration needs. One of the most evident modifications that happened are the roles that men and women can contribute not only to society as a whole but in its smallest unit, the family.
For the past centuries, women empowerment provided a great impact especially when it comes to parenting which also recognized the value of men in producing better individuals for the next generation. These paved the way to the concept of modern parenting.
Just because the methods and styles in this parenting type are somewhat fast-phasing and innovative does not mean it can ruin the better and helpful outcomes in traditional parenting. Rather, these are parenting approaches that somehow simplify, upgrade or change the usual approaches but it still aims to provide the necessary ingredients every child needs for them to become better persons for themselves and everyone.
Here are some of the modern parenting methods that are typically used and applied for their children and the family as a whole:
Every parent has their own story of childhood, and these experiences along with their parental instincts, this parenting approach uses the power of instinct and their feelings to know what is the best for their children.
Also known as "overparenting", "lawnmower parenting" or "cosseting parenting", this type of parenting happens when parents take too much responsibility for their children's journey-every successes, failures, and other experiences they have. They become overinvolved to their growth and development, being over-responsible parents. This can be one of the safest forms of modern parenting, but the effects can be unhealthy both for the parent and child.
The main aspiration for attachment type of modern parenting is to establish and maintain a close emotional connection between a parent and child. This approach is being preferred because parents look forward to quickly respond to the needs of their children. Parents doing this must be sensitive enough at the same disposable to their children's emotions.
This parenting approach uses the parent's need to become the better version of themselves to motivate and give what they thought is needed by their children. Unfortunately, these parents are only invaded by their personal needs and are eager to have everything to revolve in their children.
The focus on positive parenting is for the child's empowerment. Their love and support are always there to get the best of what they have for their child.
One of the most tried and trusted approaches in modern parenting, the general idea of unconditional parenting is that parents have to love their children, no matter what happens in their lives. Parents continue to love and support their children and this has always been their way to show full acceptance to these kids.
Rooted from the perspective of eastern spirituality hundreds of years ago, parents applying spiritual parenting focus on self-awareness, a deep emphasis on an individual and his connection to what is happening at the present and having religious connotations.
