As for the thread; Helicopter parenting is a common tactic of litigation parties when there are no grounds or other issues.

It's often utilized as a 'finger pointing' comment by lawyers. To prove it, substantial evidence from credible witnesses would be required.

It does happen though and is a valid issue for some families.

I'm definitely not a helicopter parent, nor the opposite. Know of a helicopter parent or two... not good.

I definitely don't think it is an inherently gender-related phenomenon. There are good parents and bad parents - male or female.

I say hurrah to all good parents out there; all the people who are trying to heal, be healthy and whole so that they can guide their kids, enjoy their lives.

I was very proud of my seventeen year old daughter the other day. I had her over for dinner, put some music on, and started to cook. She asked if she could help (didn't need it, but nice to be asked) and later asked to do the dishes.

I've seen helicopter parents and I've seen the opposite, and the truth is best parenting is somewhere in the middle, and depends on the age and the charceter of the child.
