I wrote a brilliant post about this last time, but in all honesty, I think I touched a few nerves and pushed the right buttons, for the Orwellian people who like to think they control us.
So, I will write it again, just this time, use a little artistic licensing!
Take that fuckers!
Below is a definition from the urban dictionary, of what is classed as a ‘helicopter parent’.
A parent who is overly involved in the life
of their child. Then tend to hover over their every movement and decision. Often times they take control and do tasks on their behalf. They also enjoy broadcasting the details and events of their child’s life to anyone who will listen. Helicopter Parents
do not ease up
with age, in fact as the child grows up the tighter their grasp becomes.
“Are you sure that’s a good idea?”
“Where are you going, what are you doing, where is your life going?”
would never do something like that.”
“Oh, I just have to tell you what
my daughter did…”
“Can I come too?”
“I wish Laura would shut up and stop talking
about her daughter – what a helicopter parent.”
So, last time this post was written and uploaded, as I said up top, I don’t think it went down well.
About 6 months ago I was talking to a friend on the other side of the world about something not connected to anything or any scenario I’ve ever mentioned.
THEY said at THEIR child’s school, they have a load of ‘helicopter parents’ that always make them feel a little odd and out of place.
So I asked what they were!
I’m not writing their response, as that’s between me and them. So after finishing our conversation, it was like a lightbulb had gone off above my head, like a looney toons carton, shone as bright as possible, and then burnt out and burst, all within a few seconds!
So if you are reading this, or prying, or being nosey, or, heaven forebid, actually reading this as you want too, not because you NEED too, for any particular reason, think, do I know any helicopter parents!?
I’ll be honest, if the answer is no, you are probably lying. But, if you think, deep down, that you know of none, there is one simple answer to this.
You don’t know any, because you are one, maybe even the only one in your group, circle, whatever you call it.
Think about it.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this non mentioned, non incriminating, no liable, non slanderous post.
No names were mentioned, no places, no descriptions for anyone to read into, no real life scenarios to help paint a vain, self imposed picture for anyone.
It’s just a post about a definition, a conversation and a thought.
A hypothetical, non incriminating or slanderous thought.
Why thank you!
