A parent hovering is harmful to the child because it can cause a feeling of being overwhelmed by always having someone over their shoulder (“Here’s Why You Need to Stop Helicopter Parenting”). Helicopter parenting can cause anxiety, depression, a lack of confidence, unhappiness, academic problems, and many other difficulties in a child’s lives. Anxiety can come from always having a parent there to fix their problems whenever the child may want to fix the problem on their own. A child has to learn from their own mistakes, and whenever a parent is always there to mend their problems they have no
If parents are hyperprotective against their kids and involve in every decision, how can they learn to develop themselves? And on the other hand, what should parents do if their kids need help and are totally failing in life? It is very difficult to make a distinction between love for children and being a helicopter parent. It doesn’t mean that parents don’t love their children if they leave some of the decision to the kid, instead of controlling their lives and hover over them like a helicopter and keep them under continuous surveillance. When we discuss this topic, parents may feel like they are caught between two stools, but it is better to loosen up than holding the rope tight.
Hardy Knox Middle School has a policy that restricts parents from entering classrooms in order to prevent parents from disturbing classrooms. A college professor whose name is Morgan writes in the comments section of the article In Defense of Helicopter Parents,”Actually, I’m a college professor and the children of helicopter parents do harm the other students in class. I recently assigned a five-page essay and had one student come to see me with a list of questions which her father had after he proofread her essay, but the essay was not her work.”(Belkin) As parents help their children with everyday schoolwork, the unfortunate child is not gaining any learning experience. Helping children do their schoolwork is a form of academic
The single mother will need to obtain the responsibility of providing for the family, do maintenance on the house and be a caring parent, while only being one person. This can be highly stressful and it can have a negative impact on the mother and the children. This can cause a conflict in the house if the only parent in the house has been overwhelmed and has no time to relax.“Medina says she recognized right away that she didn’t have time to be the father and mother both”(Forestner 2). Telemachus’s mother was so busy trying to rule the kingdom and keep away the suitors, she did not always have the time to be with Telemachus. Telemachus decided to form friends with others in the palace such as maids and workers.
Why Bullies Should Not Be Prosecuted If people ask someone about their childhood memories, stories related to school will also emerge with high probability, because everybody spends a significant part of their lives in these institutions. Since school years are influential, it would be important that children have positive memories about this period, but reality does not always correspond to expectations . Bullying is one of the factors which ruin school experience, and it is gaining prominence. According to Olweus, "A student is being bullied or victimized when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other students" (Dake 173).

This is a major statistic because it can influence the child’s life. If the parents aren’t discipline enough then the children feel like they can do whatever they want and this could affect their lives forever. Discipline has to be in the foster homes for the children so they can grow up and live a good life. It discipline was not established before the child went into the foster care system then it could be hard for the new foster parents to establish discipline as the child will not understand what they can and cannot do and will just live the life anyway they want.

Letting go of the hopes and dreams that we originally had about their child or children, and which no longer serve us, is an exceptionally complicated and complex process. Parents often find themselves juggling the daily needs of their family with medical and therapy appointments, teacher meetings and advocating for services
Family is one of the most important parts of life growing up. A strong family is what growing children need to be successful and have a bright future. Growing up in a family that is weak, does not have strong family ties and is violent leads to problems for the children and the parents, which is seen in Hillbilly Elegy and Evicted. Violence in families can affect children greatly, it can lead to second generations of poor communication between spouses and can be overall unhealthy for those living in that environment. J.D.
