Are you a Helicopter Parent?

I subscribe to Babyzone's newsletter and the latest I received contained a quiz for you to check if you are a helicopter parent, i.e. if you, according to the writer, "hover over their children and become too involved in their lives, including interfering in college or career decisions later in life".

It is a fine line and a tough balancing act to ensure that we give our kids the proper guidance without depriving them of learning independence, decision-making and problem-solving skills.

Try the quiz just for fun and see how you score. It scores between 1-30 and I scored a 15 :)
