Perceived Helicopter parenting and its relation with decision making styles and academic performance in the context of Indian adolescents
      Medhavi Sood, Dweep Chand Singh
Abstract: Introduction: Helicopter parenting (HP) refers to a distinct type of perceived parenting. It is developmentally inappropriate levels of parent involvement and control in their children’s lives, which is often observable through their advice, direction, and help with problem. They even make decisions for their children and personally invest in their children’s goals. Today’s adolescents are expected to make decisions pertaining to their health related behaviour and career related choices. Decision making refers to the capability of developing reliable level of competence to foresee the consequences of alternatives. It is the fourth phase of cognitive development which is normally reached during adolescence, and is synonymous with abstract thinking, logical reasoning and problem-solving skills. Helicopter parenting has been shown to have negative outcomes in emerging adults but so far it has not been investigated in adolescents in India.
