Abstract

Relations among helicopter parenting, separation-individuation, and perceived self-competence were examined among 197 undergraduates aged 18-23 years. These data suggest helicopter parenting is a liability for development during emerging adulthood: Greater parental "hovering" was associated with greater pathology in the process of separation-individuation, and lower perceived self-competence in multiple domains.
