The only victims are the kids
Kids Are Kids
Making the kids take on rolls as husband/wife or friend of the parent. And by that, I mainly mean that the child is then the person who has to make the parent happy and fulfilled. Or, they know about marital issues, issues in the family, money issues, etc. (Razorblade_Kiss)
I Won’t Grow Up
Being overly involved and not letting the child to grow up. I know a person who is 21, and to this day her parents don’t let her to use the public transportation, they are involved with her studies and assignments and so on. The person doesn’t even know how to boil an egg or to mop the floor. (Miss_Keys)
Over protect so they aren’t ready for responsibility or minor issues.
So many adults I’ve met can’t cook or handle minor repairs because their parents had the view that simple tools or fire are too dangerous and kids shouldn’t be anywhere near them. (Mouler)
Not a parent yet but I am super disturbed by helicopter parenting. I almost think it’s worse than lax parenting. At least some of the kids with lax parents will learn to fend for themselves, as I did. Those with helicopter parents, I dunno. My roomie never had to cook for herself and she doesn’t even make ramen right. (BlairClemens2)
