    • Jeana, I really enjoyed reading your post and this is a compelling topic for me, as I many times feel that I am subjected to helicopter parenting. I agree that this method of parenting can be done in both beneficial and harmful ways to the child. This has been a topic of interest recently as more and more college students arrive to college with an ineptitude for independent functioning. It interests me just how many different factors play into the reasoning behind being a “helicopter parent”. I found an interesting article that you might like to take a look at that shows the correlations between helicopter parenting and college binge drinking later in life: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2016/09/how-helicopter-parents-cause-binge-drinking/492722/ . You chose a very enticing topic and displayed credible, thorough research of your topic. Good job!

    • Hi Jeana! I really enjoyed reading about your topic, and although I haven’t really been subjected to helicopter parenting, I know many of my peers who have been. Having older siblings, it was easier for my parents to parent me, since they had past examples of faults and rights and wrongs of parenting. There willingness to let me try new things, come out of my shell, and experience the world as my own has really helped my emotional and psychological development since an early age. Although “helicopter parents” mean well, there are many bad outcomes tied to their actions. For more about the effects of helicopter parenting, you can check this link out: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/when-your-adult-child-breaks-your-heart/201701/the-effects-helicopter-parenting Great job!!

I really appreciated how you addressed several different perspectives such as religious, moral, health and governmental. By reading your essay I was able to see a diverse range of perspectives and form my own…Read More

    Jeana commented on the post, Information Technology

    Hi Onyu,
    Your argumentative essay was an interesting read. I like how you focused on both the advantages and disadvantages of technology. By stating the advantages and then following up with an explanation about how their disadvantages overrule them, I could see how technology may be much more detrimental than I previously thought. However to…Read More
