What's Your Parenting Style: Helicopter or Free-Range?

What's Your Parenting Style: Helicopter or Free-Range?

"Honey, you're not doing it right. Let mommy do it." It is natural for a mother to want to help her child, but it is often more useful for the youngster to learn things on their own without the constant attention of their parent. Allowing children to figure things out on their own fosters independence and consequently, confidence. On the other hand, many moms and dads feel that being a free-range parent in a seemingly crazy society is too risky and prefer to keep tabs on their babes at all times. We always ask this of our celebrity parents so we think it's about time we ask you, too. So tell mommy, do you parent from a distance or do you hover over your offspring?
