Helicopter parents are those parents that think their kid can do no wrong, that believe that everyone should get a trophy, no matter what. These are parents that want to cling on a little tighter and never, ever let go. If you were raised by these clingy, friends-first, amazingly close parents, you'll relate to some of these gifs!

Taylor I was so much happier after I moved out. My mom was always asking where I was, what I was doing, why I was doing what and getting mad if I was doing something she didn't agree with. Ugh, it was hard to do anything. Don't even get me started on me trying to stay the night somewhere even though I was 20+ at the time. Parents need to learn when to protect and when to let go
DiSmith90 OMG I think I might be a slightly helicopter Mum. It's only because I love them 😕 haha!
