HELICOPTER PARENTING AMONG COLLEGE STUDENT 3 Helicopter Parenting Research Proposal Introduction Taking care of the family is the most critical responsibility for parents. The relationship between parents and their children depends on the amount of time spent together during their free time. The act of making a close look of children or “helicopter parenting "is not common among families in modern societies ( Fitzgerald, 2015 ). Helicopter parenting tends to evoke negative attitudes toward other people. The term helicopter parenting is used to illustrate the ability of parents to over involve themselves with the affairs of their children. However, the popular media highlights that over the involvement of parents into the affairs of students may constitute an epidemic (Okray, 2016). The assumption that over-involvement of parents in children development is detrimental fuels the need to examine its correlates empirically. Background Summary According to Okray (2016), helicopter parenting is likely to have short term benefits to school-going children. However, the form of parenting comes with several negatives to college students. For instance, college students cannot discuss educational matters with their professors without the intervention of their parents. Despite the existence of the little evidence on the implication of helicopter parenting among the college students, scientific evidence connects the parenting to lack of self-regulatory skills as well as emotional problems. According to studies, children raised through helicopter parenting are likely to develop lower satisfaction with life in general. Additionally, they are likely to lack the skills necessary to reach their primary goals. The study shall focus on the college students where parents create greater independence and autonomy over their lives. The reviews are critical in the illustration of the line between parental support and overprotection as Sapungan & Sapungan (2014).
