EFFECTS OF HELICOPTER PARENTING 2 Abstract Helicopter parenting is a parenting style that has recently gotten the attention of many people, especially college advisors and employers. Being overly protective, helicopter parents leave no chance for their children to stumble and commit mistakes. This paper focuses on the effects of helicopter parenting on a person’s journey towards young adulthood.
