Teachers — What's The Absolute Worst Case Of "Helicopter Parenting" You've Ever Seen?

Let's get into it.

It's no secret that parenting is tough.

Parents usually want what's best for their children, though they don't always know how to show it.

Some parents default to "helicopter parenting," meaning they become over-involved in their children's lives.

"Helicopter parenting" can take many forms. For instance, perhaps you noticed one of your students turning in homework written in vastly different handwriting from their own. After chatting with the student, they revealed that their mom had been doing their homework for them.

Or maybe you once had a very angry parent corner you during a conference and scream in your face for giving their kid a B instead of an A on an assignment.

Or perhaps you had to get the principal involved because one of your student's parents showed up every day at lunchtime with fast food and insisted on eating with their child in the cafeteria.
