The Boston Globe. 2009. < eliv ers_benefits/?page=ful >. Accessed 1 March 2019. Don Aucoin wrote this article for the home/lifestyle section of ¨The Boston Globe.¨Aucoin informs parents who are perhaps new to parenting or are helicopter parents themselves and express why this way of parenting could bring advantages to their child’s upbringing. Aucoin’s expository piece establishes the advantages that helicopter parenting can have through including several opinions -- such as that of Barbara Dafoe Whitehead, a social historian and the Knight family. Through several opinions from qualified people and statistical data, Aucoin considers helicopter parenting successful for the upbringing of a child as it is coupled with plentiful advantages. Aucoin’s article provides a valid argument for helicopter parent, an extremely controversial topic in the parenting field due to the several fair advantages that this parenting style contributes to a growing child.

Vicki Botnick, a certified psychotherapist based in California, often contributes to the family mental health section of ¨Goodtherapy.com,¨ a website dedicated to finding therapists anywhere in the United States and also informing those who need psychological help or are interested. This expository article however informs parents, who may have just become parents, on the benefits of helicopter parenting and overall concludes that this fashion of parenting is helpful for children not only short-term, but also in the long-run. Botnick identifies these benefits through her reference to other articles/writing/books -- which include a piece from the 1990’s and one that was published more recently -- and establishes life values that these children may learn due to this parenting style. In turn, this demonstrates an overall approval of helicopter parenting due to many benefits, so it could help one support those parents and their style.
