Is it better to be a helicopter parent or have free range children or somewhere in the middle?


Curious what other parents think about this as I seem to find my self struggling to find a spot in the middle. Have times really changed so much that we need to helicopter or is the media just available to tell us more?

    The problem lies in finding that middle ground. Even now I struggle with it. My mother instinct says hover. My logical side say let them be. It's a balancing act.
