Three Cheers for Healthy Helicopter Parents

Three Cheers for Healthy Helicopter Parents

Commented Oct 18, 2012 at 10:50:39 in Parents

“Well said! I consider myself a healthy helicopter parent also. It amazes me how many people think their opinions should matter to me in the decisions I make for my children. Why not leave decisions about child rearing to the people who know a child's needs and capabilities best and love him most dearly. . . his parents! I have certainly been criticized (at times even by extended family) for seeking out extra help or opportunities for them. I will not waver in doing what is best for my boys, nor should any sane parent listen to the cacophony of free advice out there. It is worth exactly what you paid for it.”

“Amen! Everyone has an opinion these days about how other people should raise their children. Why not leave parenting decisions to those people out ther who love a child most dearly and know their needs the best. . . parents. I am also a healthy helicopter parent who has been faulted, at times by extended family,for seeking out extra help or opportunities for my children. I will never waver in making the best choices for them (until they are able to do this for themselves).”
