F*ck Helicopter Parents; Snowplow Parents Are The New Overprotective Moms and Dads

felicity-huffman-lori-loughlin.jpg

Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman bribed college officials to get their kids in college. And they are just one extreme example of “snowplow parents,” who parenting experts say are the new brand of pushy, overprotective moms and dads.

-“Helicopter parents” would hover around their children, but snowplow parents want to push aside every obstacle in their kids’ path.

-75% of U.S. parents of kids ages 18-28 have made appointments on their behalf

-Parents call kids’ college professors trying to negotiate grades

-Parents have called adult children’s employer to resolve problems

-One child left her college bc the cafeteria served food with sauce on it, and she hated sauce. Her parents had always helped her avoid sauce by calling school and other parents to ask them not to put sauce on food.

Do you know any snowplow parents or snowplowed children?
