OVERPARENTING: HELICOPTERS, SNOWPLAUGHS AND BUBBLE -WRAPPERS


The MacMillan dictionary defines overparenting as being so worried about the safety or success of your children that you do too many things for them and prevent them from being independent” The Independent was referring to overparenting in their 2008 article when they wrote 'Over-parenting is the curse of our time … Can you hear that low whirr above our school playgrounds? … the after-effects of Britain's helicopter parents, who hover over their kids, ready to swoop when any risk or stress or spontaneity strikes.' Do your research and find out more about the issue then write an essay where you discuss the different parenting styles and their effects.
