Are You A Lawnmower Parent?

Helicopter parenting has been HUGE for the past decade or so . . . but for a lot of parents today,

hovering over their kids to protect them isn’t good enough.

So here’s a term for an even MORE extreme method that’s becoming a big trend today:  Lawnmower parenting.

According to a teacher who wrote an essay about it, quote, “Lawnmower parents go to whatever lengths necessary to prevent their child from having to face adversity, struggle, or failure.”

Why lawnmower?  Because they MOW DOWN any person or obstacle that might keep their kid from having the most charmed and convenient life possible.

The teacher’s top example was a parent who left work to come to the high school to drop off bottled water for the kid.  He said he asked his daughter if they have water fountains, and she said yeah, but she really wanted to drink bottled water instead.
