What is the most ridiculous thing you have ever witnessed a helicopter parent do?
Quoting Bethsunshine: Following a child around the playground with wipes and hand sanitizer
I saw a 6 year old pretend he was afraid to climb down the stairs at the play ground and his mom said "Oh it's okay baby let mommy help you" and lifted him down. It was bizarre.
The ones that follow the kid around, up and down the slide instead of allowing the kid to play with other kids....
I have witnessed this before, actually more than once. There I am just sitting on the bench letting dd interact with other kids while still keeping an eye on her.
I was picking up a kid on my DS soccer team and his mom brought a low back booster out. The kid is 13.
Quoting Hannahluvsdogs: Not let their son play in my backyard because I have a bird feeder and they're convinced exposure to birds causes blindness later in life.
