Helicopter parents may prevent children from flying high

Instead of helping, helicopter parents may be hindering their kids by hovering too close, The Guardian reports. A new study shows that when children have overcontrolling parents at the age of 2, they may have trouble managing their emotions and behavior as they grow up, leading to problems in school. These children are more likely to have poor social skills, emotional problems, and an unsatisfactory academic performance, according to the study reported in Developmental Psychology. Instead, the researchers suggest parents should give their children space to experience and manage varying emotions on their own so that they can soar to new heights as they get older.
