So, There Is A Level Above A “Helicopter Parent” and Teachers Are Warning Against “Lawnmower Parents”

An anonymous teacher from the website WeAreTeachers wrote a blog article going viral called “Lawnmower Parents Are The New Helicopter Parents And We Are Not Here For It.”

In the article, a lawnmower parent is described as parents that “mow obstacles down so kids won’t experience them in the first place.”

The issue is leading to a great debate on the roles of parents and teachers in preparing students and kids for adversity.
