You've heard of helicopter parents constantly hovering over their child.
Now, there is a new parenting type called "Snowplow Parents."
A snowplow parent is one who clears every obstacle from their child's path.
But while they do that, they also pile on the pressure.
According to David McCullough a teacher and author on the subject, this style of parenting is doing harm to children, making them anxious and dependent, and narcissistic.
McCullough says micromanaging kids can make them terrified of failure and unable to cope in the real world.
