Better not be 'helicopter parents'

Feb 14 2013, 9:40am CST | by

London, Feb 14 (IANS) Children who undergo overbearing parenting are likely to be depressed or anxious, a study has suggested.

London, Feb 14 — Children who undergo overbearing parenting are likely to be depressed or anxious, a study has suggested.

Researchers warn that the overbearing parenting style, known as "helicopter parenting" - where parents hover over their children and become too involved in their lives - affects a child's ability to get on with others, Daily Mail reported Thursday.

They say while some parental involvement helps children develop, too much can make them more likely to be depressed and less satisfied with their lives.

Children of over controlling parents, suggests the study, feel less competent and less able to manage life and its stressors while some parents wrongly consider "helicopter parenting" to be supportive, rather than detrimental.

The research, from the University of Mary, Washington in the US, involved 297 American graduate students aged 18 to 23.
