One of my pet peeves are overprotective parents! Overprotective parents are the most insidious parents around. This abhorrent parenting style result in children being less creative problem solvers. Furthermore, children growing up in such an environment are quite risk aversive, decision challenged, and possess little or no survival savvy. Many overprotected children are emotionally, psychologically, and socially backwards although they can be academically prodigious.
They further worse in college and even more worse in the career arena. Many bosses viewed these overprotected children as extreme headaches and liabilities to their organization. More often or not, many of these children end up being terminated and unemployable. In relationships, many overprotected children are extremely passive which translates into the more active partner leaving them fast. Some overprotected children are drawn into Svengali-like and abusive relationships where their partner is extremely dominant and quite parental. Overprotective parents are only doing their children a huge disservice. Parents need to stop babying their children and prepare them to be independent as soon as possible!

It truly amazes me when overprotective parents lament how immature and irresponsible their adolescent and/or near adult children are. Didn't they realize that they were partly responsible by their intrusive and controlling parenting in making their children childish, puerile, and...
