Hovering or Grounded?: Exploring Helicopter Parenting as a Valid Construct

Volungis, A. M., Liu, S., Whittle, D., Henriquez, S., & Schmidt, K. (2014, March). Hovering or Grounded?: Exploring Helicopter Parenting as a Valid Construct.  Paper presented at the 85th annual conference of the Eastern Psychological Association, Boston, MA.

As sensationalistic as many of the media accounts of helicopter parenting may be, the literature exploring this construct and its effects is sparse.  This presentation will have three major themes.  First, we explore the validity of the construct. Second, we question the utility of studying helicopter parenting, including the influence of the media.  Finally, we conclude with some comments on cultural considerations when conceptualizing this construct.
