As the term suggests, helicopter parents are those who hover, like helicopters, over their children's life. They are the physically hyper-present parents who pay extremely close attention to their children's experiences and problems, particularly their education. This may mean being within arm's reach, even if it's against their children's own wishes, both literally and metaphorically. Studies have shown that this parenting style has caused psychological problems among the offspring, some of which are lifelong. Learn more about helicopter parenting and its long-lasting effects from this infographic by Yellow Brick.
