Yes, Francie - you're exactly right! My mom's best friend is a helicopter mom...and her kids are in their 30s. Reading between the lines, it's fairly obvious that her two daughters dislike the constant survelliance - but both are the same way with their kids. My sister once babysat one of the grandbabies and his mother spoke sharply to my sis for letting her 3-year old sit on the floor and play with trucks without playing with him. Really? He's not allowed to play on his own?

LOL, AOTB, on the key to the lawnmower thing! I'd probably be telling DH where to buy the cat food. I don't know why that man can't seem to buy the right cat food without my help.

"....it is just as abusive to be too indulgent than to be neglectful."

Amen to that! Another way I've heard it put was that if your child believes your household revolves around him/her, you are doing your child a great disservice!
