One thing people love to do on the Internet above all else is judge others and tell them how to live their lives.
Let’s get one thing straight: While it may be fun to see how other people live (or how they appear to live based on their social media), your life belongs to YOU and the choices you want to make.
On the other hand, I think we can all agree that some things are just, well, odd. Now I’m no parent, but who hasn’t seen people with children fighting online about how to raise them properly? Do this, don’t do that, experts recommend this, my family doesn’t do that— the arguments could last for weeks.
At the end of the day, you decide how to raise your kids. But there are some practices and standards we could all agree upon. And smothering your kids to the point of causing them a failure to launch is probably not the way to go.
People were asked to share the worst examples of helicopter parenting they’ve seen, and these stories will make you feel so sorry for the kids.
Who’s the real problem: The child or the parent?
