Comment on The effect of helicopter parents on their kids by rickflick

Ah, the good old days. My father grew up on a small farm in Ontario. He tells of milking the cows before dawn, then setting off for the 5 mile walk to school. In winter. He tells of his father, my grandfather, digging the foundation for his house by hand. With a shovel. How did we ever get here? Some say despite the appearance, it's the same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.

I'm thinking perhaps I shall tell students, "Please do repeatedly interrupt the teacher." That way, perhaps they will not.

If only they had a modicum of self-awareness.

Just a brief reminder of the term and when it came into play. Obviously it did not apply to all. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helicopter_parent

'an exponent of “Christian values” ' Any time I see that phrase I think "What, like for instance Vlad Dracula?" Would that be a low enough bar? ;) cr

They claim you should hate the sins but love the sinner. And they really love this sinner.

The illustrations of the jaguar and deer could represent Maya and Mexica (Aztec) spirits often depicted in their glyphs.

Now there's a term that is entirely counter-intuitive. I always assumed 'helicopter parenting' meant that they virtually abandoned the kids to caregivers, just buzzing in briefly on rare occasions to say "Hi, all OK?, good, see ya" and buzzing off for a few more weeks. The exact opposite of what has been described above. But probably far less bad for the kids (he says cynically) and much easier for the poor teachers. cr

I remember how much my parents supervised my play - zero percent. As long as I returned for meals they were quite happy. It was the same for almost all the children in my little town. It was the sixties - a different age. The pre-Python Four Yorkshiremen give an accurate account of life in Britain in those days. https://www. youtube.com/watch?v=VKHFZBUTA4k
