Re: Helicopter parenting: are you over protective?

I remember this topic from the other day, and it got me thinking.

Judging by the content of EF (is there any other way to judge?), helicopter parenting has become the default.

Do we need a new term for what used to be "normal" parenting?

Absolutely not - a dumb default shouldn't be accepted as "normal". Let's keep normal the way it's supposed to be. TIS

And it's probably fair to say the default EF response to helicopter parenting is a SAM
