In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m tackling the misnomer of helicopter parenting. We think hovering over our kids is protecting them, and loving them, but it actually does more harm than good. By hovering over our kids and overprotecting them, we are robbing them of building lagging skills, successful future independence, and the joy of doing something on your own for the first time.

So, let’s dive in and get your out of the pilot’s seat.

Enjoy!
