Annotated Bibliographies (Prepared by Ana Corro) Do college students who have helicopter parents experience less family satisfaction? College students who have helicopter parents will have a lower level of family satisfaction than those who do not. Kelly, L., Duran, R.L., & Miller-Ott, A.E. (2017). Helicopter parenting and cell-phone contact between parents and children in college. Southern Communication Journal, 82(2), 102– 114. ? ins=tu&url=? direct=true&db=ufh&AN=122763653&site=eds-live&scope=site There are many studies that are now focusing on the effects of helicopter parenting, but this study, in particular, focuses on a different version of helicopter parenting, which is cell-phone contact. The purpose of this study was to investigate the differences in cell-phone rules and cell- phone avoidance behaviors based on parent’s degrees of helicopter parenting and to understand the relational outcomes of closeness and satisfaction between college students when comparing high-, moderate-, and low-helicopter parenting. In this study, the participants were 529 undergraduate students who were asked to complete an online survey anonymously. The survey consisted of question that asked how far the students lived from their parent, how frequently they have cell-phone contact, and lastly measure their mothers and fathers separately. The hypotheses of this study was: High-helicopter mothers (fathers) initiate contact more frequently with college children than do moderate low-helicopter mothers (fathers). The study also had a few research questions that they wanted to address. The research questions focuses on college students’ satisfaction and closeness with parents, satisfaction with cell-phone contact with their parents, cell-phone rules with parents, and cell phone avoidance behaviors and each factor varies as a function of their parent’s helicopter parenting. The overall finding of this study is the differential association of helicopter parenting by mothers and fathers with the relational outcomes of closeness and relationship satisfaction. It was noted that most participants reported having helicopter mothers. The findings show that there were no differences between high-, moderate-, and low-helicopter mothers on frequency of contact with participants, but instead, it is the content and function of the calls and texts. This article becomes very helpful in widening the perspective of helicopter parenting and the different manners it can be performed.
