Helicopter Parents (related to another post/reply)- why do you care?
I've seen that phrase on here & I've read the post about it but I'm wondering why do people care? It's not your kid. It sounds like a lot of judgment when some people see it & people comment about it, but why do you care how so much how someone else raises their kid? How is it important to you if someone goes & feeds their child or watches them play at school? Or whatever it is they're doing that's considered helicopter parenting. What effect does that have on your day? I mean apparently it's a good conversation topic to criticize other parents instead of attempting to find out why they're acting that way (i.e., mental or physical limitations/issues) & act like you're better than them. But what impact does it have on your life & the lives of your children? Some of you talk about the type of kids that are being raised but again how does that effect your family? So you raised your child & weren't a helicopter parent does that hurt your kids because society now has those kids?
And I always find it interesting if a teacher on here complains. So you complain about the helicopter parents but then if a parent isn't involved in their child's education & blows you off then you complain as well. Seems to me you'd want a parent interested, even if overly so, than one who doesn't give a crap.
