Babies: 6 - 9 Months

Hi, my name is Robs, and I am a Helicopter Mom.

I have become the mother I swore I would never become.  I am a Helicopter mom.  I hover.  I worry.  I watch like a hawk.  I need to get a grip because my girls will kill me in the future.

Is anyone else like this?

What do you do to ease your worries so you can stop hovering?

Re: Hi, my name is Robs, and I am a Helicopter Mom.

  • I'm such a helicopter mom that my other mom friends make fun of me.  But then again, I've never had my kid hurt themselves like they all have.

    I also have germaphobe tendencies, which don't help with the hovering.  I suppose I need to get over them, but easier said than done!

    Which, of course, means that you're a better parent and not just lucky so far. Hmm

    I be drinkin' already.  Seriously, I do need to cut back on the wine.  It has become normal to have 1-2 glasses every night.  Embarrassed

    My mom was a Helicopter Mom. Try as she did to stop anything from happening to my brother and I... we still got into trouble. Our knees were scraped, fights were started, and trees were fallen out of. We were just rowdy kids! I am the same way with Adalyn, but she's still managed to bonk her head trying to crawl and get stepped on by my friend's 1 year old. I think stuff like that just happens sometimes.

  • What motivates me to not be a helicopter parent is being raised by one. Because of my helicopter parents I was so nervous as a child and afraid to try new things. I was always fearful of getting hurt so I was overly cautious and didnt have as much fun as my friends did.

    My kid had a shiner last week from running and falling on concrete. Didnt bother me. I'm glad for him to get bumps and bruses. I dont want him to be raised the way I was.

  • Have another kid.  When you have 2 you don't have enough eyes to be a helicopter to both of them so you say screw it, whoever is in the most "danger" at that moment will get my attention the other is playing at their own risk.

    Tastes like fake strawberry (kind of a chemical taste). I'll stick to purple haze or shiner ruby red.
