Are You a Helicopter Parent?

OK, so I get it. I mean, we have to make sure our kids are OK, right? We need to know if they’re struggling, if someone is bullying them, if they’re hurting. And the only way to know is to BE there. Watching, listening, hovering. 

Except, no. Your kids will be OK without your 24/7 knowledge and input.

Your kid’s happiness? NOT your problem. Their safety, sure. So teach them to cross the street alone. Then let them do it. As a matter of fact, anything you’re worried about them doing alone, follow that recipe:

  1. Name the obstacle.
  2. Teach them to overcome it.
  3. Let them try.
  4. Rinse and repeat. 

It’s harder on us than on them. For reals.
