Helicopter Parenting – Between the Scenes | The Daily Show

    But yo can’t let your black child out to play these days because they might not come back. That’s a valid fear. White kids can go out all the time.

    If we “let them go,” someone calls the police.

    I agree with you, I would love to! My son needs that independence for so many reasons! It’s illegal. Even in places where it’s not, child services has it’s own rules. All it takes is a phone call, and people call READILY when they see an unattended child. Moms get a bad rep, but some just don’t want their children taken away. It’s a cycle of fear that perpetuates itself. Now kids aren’t allowed off our own property without an adult. I let my child play on the porch while I watch through the window and I see the suspicious, horrified expressions as people pass by and don’t even look hard enough to see me there.

    Ridiculous how children are brought up now. I walked a half mile with my Mother to catch the bus. I had a purse attached to my Macintosh by an elastic thread so I didn’t lose it. In one pocket it had threepence and two pence in the other for the return tickets. I got of at the city main bus terminal and caught another bus which took me to school. At the end of school I did the trip in reverse, my Mother met me for the half mile walk home. This was 1961 and I was five years old.

    I’m really glad Trevor is addressing this. My mom never let me walk home to and from school, or even to the liquor store to buy chips and Arizona, even if they were close by. ☹️

    It’s now illegal to let your kids walk to the park and play go to school alone if it’s more then two blocks away. It’s now neglect and abuse. I don’t play to all the hype about what you can or can’t do as a parent. I was abused, went through 14 years in the foster care system. I know what is true abuse. I know that a butt whoopin is not abuse as long as it is on the bum, with only my hand and never hard enough to push the child down or cause them to pitch forward. However I don’t think a spanking is always the right form of punishment. It depends on the misbehavior. Reaching dangerous things after being told not to and why can result In a quick smack on the bottom, one spank. Talking back, disrespectful behaviors, time out on the wall. Lies and cussing, pate smeared down the tounge and wall. Stealing, lose your stuff except books, bed and clothes for a time. So on…

    Hi Trev?Absolutely Damn Right Baby, The News Controls Peoples Reactions By Playing and Toying With Their Emotions!!!

    I’m not afraid of flying, but I get why some people would be as opposed to cars, even if they are safer. A cars on the ground, a plane is 30,00 feet in the air. if your car breaks down, then you just stop, if a plane breaks down…

    Well, the fear that your child might get killed, severly injured or abused is a valid one, because these things happen all too often.
    So you should let your children play by themselves as much as possible to protect them from harm, because most perpetrators are relatives or close friends. 😉

    My mom is like this thats why she’s so strict with me

  • spookym123 2 years ago

    I don’t think most people who have a fear of flying base that fear on the belief that there is a greater chance of crashing in a plane vs a car, but rather if something does go wrong, you don’t fall 30,000 feet from a car.

    Helicopter parenting i feel only happens with a certain demographic and/or gender. My sister was never allowed to go anywhere unless my parents knew who, what, when, where, why and how. With my brother and i, we would just leave as soon as our homework and chores were done and my parents gave up on the streetlight rule as i got into the latter teen years we didnt have a stay at home parent or the internet for them to keep track of us, cell phones were barely a thing then and kids definitely didnt have them.
