ok not really title is just for attention!

But every mom does something that could be considered helicopter parenting! That is from my experience with being around other moms on a daily basis! (family)

So what is one thing you feel you do and feel it could be considered helicopter parenting??

The one thing I have been told that I hover about is not allowing my kids to just go play for more than 10-15 mins (if that), alone in their room or anywhere for that matter!

Hmmmm......  I don't let my 6 year old have play dates at children's houses that I do not know the parents well.  Does that count?

Helicopter parenting? Is that a reference to parents that constantly hover over their kids?

You know what they say about common sense - sometimes it isn't so common!  :)  LOL!

I agree though - i don't feel like that is overboard, but I'm sure some think it is...
