Helicopter Parents: The Backlash Against Overparenting - TIME

Great article. It is like a wake-up call to parents to really learn when to let go and when to pull the string....ya know, just like flying a kite. But can't just blame parents alone when they adopt 'helicopterism' parenting, societal expectations are to be blamed too coz society in general sets the standard on what is normal and what is abnormal, what is to be applauded and what is to be frowned upon.
